Objectives: The project ‘Migration.Communication.Schools’ (MIKS) aimed to communicate knowledge on migration in an age-appropriate manner in view of raising awareness on the societal responsibility for a successful migration policy.

Summary: The MIKS project addressed the main target group of students and educators in Austria, as well as the general public. It was a follow-up to the 2017-2018 pilot project ‘Migration Communication – MIKO’ and built on its main outputs, including two theatre plays and a policy simulation game. These outputs aimed at communicating the findings of the 2016 ‘Report by the Migration Council: Understanding Migration – Managing Migration’, which elaborates a balanced approach to migration, based on future scenarios, and addressing 10 sub-areas of migration, ranging from demographic developments and changes in society to the configuration of the migration system in Austria.
