Immigration has become a sensitive and divisive issue in many societies. This panel discussion aims to shed light on the politicisation of immigration debates in Europe, Singapore and Australia, and dissect the discourse and rise in populist resistance to immigration. Also discussed will be issues concerning social cohesion, integration and national security that are often linked to immigration anxieties.
This panel discussion is part of the Migration Policy Dialogue held in Singapore associated with the EU-funded Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Policy, Politics, Culture: EU Migration and Integration (PPCEUMI) network, which brings together expertise in migration policy from Europe, Asia and the Pacific to explore the emerging shifts in migration policymaking.
