Abstract:Recognising a heated discussion about Romanian and Bulgarian free movement in British Newspapers, my interest about its development arose. Simultaneously, increasing attention is paid to Eurosceptical politicians, bringing up the question if the attitude towards the EU is an influencer on the Eastern European migration debates. The question is treated by a qualitative critical frame analysis of primary literature, namely political debates of two particular cases: Great Britain as starting point of my reflections and Germany, differing from UK in its EU-attitude. Analysis shows that Euroscepticism is a noticeable influencer on the discourse about free movement, shaping British discussions in a less receptive way for free movers than German debates.
