Ipsos MORI report on attitudes to immigration

Perceptions and Reality: Public attitudes to immigration in Germany and Britain was published by Ipsos MORI in November 2014.

The report by Ipsos MORI and Ipsos Germany compares public attitudes to immigration in Britain and Germany, showing them on very different paths. Generational analysis of the European Social Survey shows Germans have become much more positive than Britons about the economic impact of immigration over the last decade and also more consensual in their views. The British public, in contrast, are more divided, particularly along generational lines with older generations much more sceptical about the economic contribution of migrants.
