Patrons and Clients: The Media Systems of Hungary and Poland

Media systems vary across the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. New REMINDER research studying how the media covers migration in Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovenia confirms that, in the former two countries, media discourses are shaped by political influences, where incumbent governments’ favouritism distorts media markets heavily, and pro-government journalism is now on the rise.

The Effects of Immigration on Welfare Across the EU: Do Subjective Evaluations Align with Estimations?

This working paper from examines the determinants of citizens’ perceptions of the impact of immigration on public finances. The authors show that EU citizens’ evaluations of the impacts of immigration on welfare are partly responsive to estimates of fiscal exposure from immigration in their country. However, evaluations depend less on the extent of immigrants’ contributions towards the costs of what they receive, and more on the identity of the recipient. This suggests that identity considerations appear to underlie people’s perceptions of impacts more than economic considerations.
