Article published in The Conversation
Professor Nick Vaughan-Williams and Dr Georg Löfflmann have published a new article in The Conversation outlining initial findings of the first phase of their research involving focus groups with European citizens. These findings suggest that rather than linking 'irregular' migration with fears of terrorism, EU citizens have a more nuanced position on border security, rejecting both border walls and open borders as poltical solutions to the issue of migration into Europe.
