Assessing cultural and financial implications of refugee arrivals in Friuli-Venezia-Giulia at the Municipal Level The purpose of this Fulbright research is to investigate the impact of refugee arrivals on the municipalities of Friuli-Venezia Giulia and to determine to what extent the presence of refugees in these areas is driving the political narrative and decision-making surrounding migration policy. At the same time, the research will analyze the firsthand accounts of refugees living in the Italian asylum system in the region of Friuli to gauge how the political outcomes are directly impacting the lives of refugees. The research will use assessments following interviews with political leaders, aid organizations and other relevant actors involved in migration policy making throughout the region. At the conclusion of the Fulbright research period (July 2017) the outcomes will be used to identify the role of politics in the migration crisis in Friuli-Venezia Giulia and its impact on refugee communities, minority populations and the asylum system in Italy as a whole.
