The Origins of Attitudes Towards Immigration: Exploring the Formative Role of Early Adulthood

08 Jul 2019

One of three public lectures on the EU’s asylum and immigration dilemmas, this seminar will explore the origins of attitudes towards immigration–in particular the role of political socialization and its long-lasting impacts on their attitudes towards immigration.

Haus Weltclub, Düsternbrooker Weg 148

The issue of immigration divides generations. How do these differentiations emerge? How does the political socialization of individuals born around the same time affect attitudes towards immigration? The lecture will discuss how this process of political socialization occurs in the specific issue of attitudes towards immigration as well as their implications for the understanding of attitudes towards immigration and political socialization more generally.

The seminar is organized and hosted by the Mercator Dialogue on Asylum and Migration (MEDAM) and the Kiel University’s Department of Political Science.
