14. Why is the project taking place?InterCap envisages to address the emerging concern on the way in which shifting public perceptions of (in)security and risk, influence understanding of migration, sustainable development, roles and responsibilities of EU citizens in an interdependent world. Such views negatively influence the promotion of further collaboration among the EU and the developing countries, as well as the embedding of the Policy Coherence for Development in EU member states, and increase public awareness of the global agenda on development, including the Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Agreement and Habitat III. These concerns about real and perceived threats are fueled by national political interests, media and racial prejudices. This leads to misunderstanding about who is most affected by migration flows, as well as reduced focus on issues that force human to migrate. The primary pillar to initiate a domino effect among the European public, to change attitudes, to improve its critical understanding of the interdependent world, and of its roles and responsibilities in a globalised society, is education. However, primary education actors and decision makers, teacher trainers, teachers, and consequently students, lack critical understanding of the causes and effects of migration, also influenced by misinformation and negative representations of migration impacting on public attitudes.
15. Overall objective of the projectTo enhance critical understanding of migration and sustainable development, in the context of SDGs, amongst those in teacher education, in order to increase comprehension of the relationship between the interdependent world, (in)-security and risk.
