A new survey has shown that Europeans are divided when it comes to multiculturalism and its impact on society. Pew Research found that people across the continent fear the migration crisis will result in more terrorism and fewer jobs. Few Europeans feel growing diversity makes their country a better place to live in.

Opinion on this topic is split geographically with 63 per cent of Greeks and 41 per cent of Hungarians saying growing diversity makes their countries worse places to live in. In Germany, which has taken the lion’s share of refugees, 40 per cent of people feel that growing diversity makes little difference while 26 per cent say it makes the country better place.
