Call for Proposals is framed: to address and shift local and national perceptions on migrants in general.
Has the large displacement from Ukraine shifted perceptions and narratives about migrants in Europe? Or rather confirmed them? How migrants and refugees are framed and perceived is very much contextualised by national, regional and local milieus and their resulting stories. These contexts are equally influenced by the existence, size and make-up of migrant communities and demographic diversity as well as their migration and colonial histories, their economies, levels of urbanisation and the governing structures and political establishment in place.
It is with these thoughts in mind, that this Call for Proposals is framed: to address and shift local and national perceptions on migrants in general. Through the catalysation of contextualised national coalitions of actors, EPIM seeks to leverage the current mass European support for displaced people, to address national narratives on migrants and refugees by nuancing, challenging and transforming perceptions.
