EWSI Special Feature 2015

Back in 2008, the European Values Study provided a mixed picture of intolerance in Europe. While the percentage of respondents who would not have liked to have immigrants or migrant workers as neighbours remained under 30% in most of Europe, a much higher percentage of respondents believed that immigrants take jobs away from a country’s citizens, make crime worse, are a strain on the welfare system and undermine the country’s cultural life.
