The aim of our analysis is to investigate potential factors behind the extreme cross-country differences in the levels of anti-migrant attitudes in European countries. Fear and rejection of migrants and foreigners is so widespread in some European countries that it can be seen as a socially-shared norm, while in others acceptance of migrants and ethno-racial diversity is a widely shared value. With the recent wave of mass migration (also referred to as the refugee crisis) these attitudes became especially significant in terms of the room European governments have to design and implement policies for migrant integration, and also the potential for such policies to be successful.
