Short description

My dissertation project focuses on media effects on attitudes toward migration in Europe. I have been part of the research project "Role of European Mobility and its Impacts in Narratives, Debates and EU Reforms" (REMINDER), that was completed in December 2019. The project was funded by Horizon 2020, the EU framework programme for research and Innovation. My principal role in the project was to investigate public attitudes and perceptions of migration and how these are influenced by specific types of media content and narratives. The research project is based on a panel study and a survey experiment that have been conducted in seven European countries.
