Valuing Refugee Policy. A Cross-Country Study on the Preferences for Refugee Policy in Europe
is a project based on a cross-national survey experiment covering 10 European countries. It is funded by the NCN (Narodowe Centrum Nauki) grant no 2019/33/B/HS6/00841.
Valuing Refugee Policy
The main objectives of this project are to advance the theory, methods and empirical foundations for studying policy preferences and attitudes towards refugees and asylum seekers in the context of the Refugee Crisis in Europe. The project will address the fundamental issues of the conditionality of refugee policy in respect to the cultural, economic, security and humanitarian preferences across Europe. Furthermore, the project will explore the impact of conditionality on the respective national and EU level institutions’ policy outcomes. These questions are both timely and important, not only from an academic point of view, but also a policy perspective, as they will allow to understand what policy solutions can be applied to maintain the political support of the European citizens without sacrificing the principles of liberalism and humanitarianism.
The project will design and execute a CAWI stated choice experiment in 10 European countries, selected based on their exposure to and policy towards forced migrants, namely: Poland, Hungary, Serbia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Spain, and Portugal. The novelty of the project is that it includes several Eastern European countries, and less researched Southern-Western European countries; crucial both for the movement of forced migrants within Europe and for achieving consensus at the EU level, yet substantially understudied.
The project starts on December 1, 2020 and runs for 36 months. The project will be based at the Department of Politics and International Studies of the University of Warsaw.
