Deconstructing 10 Myths on Migration

Little words often conceal big truths…

Often, ideas are so widespread that we forget to question them; to the point where they end up justifying behaviours, individual or collective strategies, and even certain policies. And so we know that, whether acting in good faith or bad, policy-makers, the media and/or the general public end up echoing prejudices and stereotypes on migrants and migration.

In the context of growing political and social tension around these issues, and the lack of recognition of the link between migration and development, the Forum des Organisations de Solidarité Internationale issues des Migrations (FORIM), ICMC Europe, and the working group Migration & Development of CONCORD have decided to tackle the ten most common myths on the subject with the support of ADEPT.

As part of the UN Togetherness campaign, is a global campaign that aims to change negative perceptions and attitudes towards refugees and migrants, and to strengthen the social contract between host countries and communities, and refugees and migrants.

We are reaching out to the general public, networks and organisations to showcase some of the videos created on the issue and try to have a discussion on the matter of migration.

The aim of the campaign is to build empathy and humanise the debate. AFFORD and ADEPT encourage different networks to watch the videos below and share them on social media. Each video’s length is less than three minutes.
