#UK plans video campaign to deter African migrants
Critics say tactic will have little effect on would-be migrants’ decision to travel and is aimed at placating British voters
“The information just does not filter through because people decide on the basis of what they hear from family and friends – people they trust – rather than foreign governments,” said Jessica Hagen-Zanker, research fellow for migration at the Overseas Development Institute.
“Information about the journey is so irrelevant and the risks seem so small compared to their daily struggles. In some ways these campaigns are about a government being able to say to voters, ‘we are doing something’, even though it is not necessarily effective.”
