Final Report - EUMAGINE (Imagining Europe from the outside. On the role of democracy and human rights perceptions in constructing migration aspirations and decision towards Europe)

Project ID: 244703
Funded under: FP7-SSH

Abstract

This is the final report of the EUMAGINE project which received funding under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project set out to understand why people in Europe's neighbouring regions may or may not want to migrate to Europe. The project paid particular attention to people's perceptions of human rights and democracy-both in Europe and in their home country. The first introductory chapters provide general information around the main hypothesis underlying the project, that the perceptions of the human rights and democracy status in the home country and in Europe impacts on individuals from so-called 'cultures of emigration', where migration has become deeply rooted in people's behavioural repertoire. The report goes on to summarise their key findings which confirms the relevance of perceptions in explaining migration aspirations, and ultimately, migration decision-making.
