Abstract

The events of the past decades in the Middle East and North Africa have led thousands of people to seek security in other countries. Thus, the topic of refugees is permanently included in the current agenda of the European countries and respectively of Bulgaria. Information deficits about this displacement raise fears among Bulgarian society and the sustainable association of refugees with terrorism begins. The use of hostile speech increases, the image of the enemy is formed.
