Migrants in the public discourse: Between media, policy and public opinion

Abstract : The chapter focuses on the public and political discourse on “migrants” in Europe, which frames the relationship between migrants and trade unions, and offers an overview of the main issues at stake. We develop an original analysis of European citizens’ attitudes towards migrants using ESS data. These data show that hostility towards immigrants is related primarily to individual attitudes, characteristics and behaviour: age, education, residential area and, especially, political affiliation as well as the level of commitment and engagement in associations and charities. Therefore politics, political cultures and political behaviour are key factors to understand racism and intolerance. In the chapter, attention is paid to the factors influencing migration policy-making, including the role of the mass media in shaping interpretations and policy instruments on the topic. We subsequently explore how migrations are framed in the public domain and policies. Finally, we look at how migrants are imagined as members of society, exploring the main narratives used to talk about their integration.
