PROJECT SUMMARY (500 Characters)

 

The PERCEPTIONS project aims to identify and understand narratives, images and perceptions of the EU – held outside of Europe – and the way they are distributed via various channels. Furthermore, we investigate how the information flow might be distorted and how false narratives might lead to security threats. Based on this knowledge, the project will create toolkits of creative and innovative measures to react to or even counteract on them, considering social, societal and structural aspects.

PROJECT SUMMARY (1.000 Characters)

 

The PERCEPTIONS project aims to identify and understand the different narratives, images and perceptions of the EU, especially outside of Europe, and their influence on migration and individual decisions to migrate to the EU. Furthermore, it is part of the project’s goals to understand the way these various narratives, images and perceptions of the EU are distributed via different channels, including social media and traditional media, how they change across the information cascade. We aim to understand who are the key actors involved in this process and who is addressed by the different stories – and what intention might be behind it. The project also investigates how the information flows might be distorted and how false narratives might lead to security problems or false expectations. Based on this knowledge, the project will create toolkits of creative and innovative measures to react to or even counteract on ‘false’ narratives, considering social, societal and structural aspects.
