European Attitudes Towards Immigration

The Financial Times has published an interesting article on the rise of the populist right in Europe.

The article quotes a survey released in November by Fondapol, a Paris-based liberal think-tank which found nearly two-thirds of EU citizens believe immigration has a negative impact on their countries.

Britain is often portrayed as anti-immigrant because of the Brexit vote but the Fondapol survey shows that Britons have a more positive attitude towards immigrants than Germany, France, Austria or Italy.
