BRIDGES: Assessing the production and impact of migration narratives is a project funded by the H2020 EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation and implemented by a consortium of 12 institutions from all over Europe. The project aims to understand the causes and consequences of migration narratives in a context of increasing politicisation and polarisation by focusing on six European countries: France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom. To do so, BRIDGES adopts an interdisciplinary and co-productive approach and is implemented by a diverse consortium formed by universities, think tanks and research centres, cultural associations, and civil society organisations.
The Brussels School of Governance (BSoG) and VUB’s Brussels Interdisciplinary Research centre on Migration and Minorities (BIRMM) are partners in the BRIDGES project. Our team is in charge of a work package that analyses how EU-funded information campaigns impact on potential migrants’ decisions, focusing on two African states as case studies (Sudan and the Gambia).
You can find more information about the project on its dedicated website, where you can also subscribe to the project newsletter. You can also follow the research on Twitter (@BIRMM_VUB; @BRIDGES_Migration).
