IOM, OSCE Discuss Perceptions and Realities of Migration on International Migrants Day

More than ever, there is a strong need to overcome myths and misconceptions about migration and migrants and to engage in more balanced and fact-based dialogue about a phenomenon that has shaped humanity, said participants at an OSCE- and IOM-hosted discussion, Perception is not reality – Towards a new narrative of migration, yesterday (18/12) at the headquarters of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in Vienna, Austria.

The gap between reality and perception had widened, with reinforced stereotypes, misconceptions and prejudices about migrants, they noted.

The event, to mark the 2017 International Migrants Day, gathered experts and practitioners in the area of migration governance as well as representatives of think-tanks, academia and research entities, civil society, international organizations and OSCE executive structures.

IOM’s Special Policy Advisor Gervais Appave said that there is a great deal of existing common ground and it hinges on the understanding that migration is not so much a problem to be solved as a human reality to be managed.
