Basic facts about immigration in Tenerife
Dirk Godenau and Daniel Buraschi
Migratory movements and the presence of immigrants in our societies are at the centre of political and media attention in Europe. In a context in which xenophobic parties have alarmingly increased their support base and where rumors and false or biased news are skewing the public debate on migration, it is particularly urgent and important that civil society, institutions and the media have substantiated and verifiable information. Promoting and disseminating scientific knowledge on migratory phenomena is one of the main purposes of the Tenerife Immigration Observatory.
