Project description

MAX is an AMIF funded project which aims to change public attitudes towards migrants.

Project goals

The goal is to improve the public image of migrants in Europe by changing the narrative around the immigration discourse and putting on the front the stories of real people.

Storytelling, creation of positive messages for the media and dialogic encounters between locals and newcomers are the key figures of the project.


The results for the whole MAX project:

  • Three reports on the impact of migrant populations in Europe (social, economic and cultural) and the opinions, fears and prejudices regarding migrants in Europe.
  • Fifty ‘success stories’ about outstanding achievements and contributions to European society, economy and culture done by migrants.
  • A set of twenty messages aiming to improve the public image of migrants in Europe.
  • A database of good and bad practices (success and failures in migrant integration), press clippings and media monitoring.
  • A training for media professionals based on the Solutions Journalism paradigm.
  • The organisation of fifteen Diversity Dialogue Fora and a final European Diversity Festival and conference.


The project involves 20 partners, 15 local organisations from 12 EU Member States as well as five EU-level partners.
