Report: Overview of recruitment methods and individual factors for migration
The country reports highlight the presence of the issue of migration in the public debates in each of the six countries. In the countries which attracts migrants from Europe and beyond such as the UK and Germany the public discourse on immigration often shifts between two narratives: on the one hand, an emphasis of the economic benefits of immigration, on the other hand, an identification of immigration as a threat to the national identity and social security systems, the latter particularly in the UK. Based on assessment of national literature on migration, this overview gives a broad picture of mobility from and to the six countries participating in this part of the GEMM project. The quantitative data from previous surveys demonstrate the significance of the process of mobility within Europe.
