Welcome to the Migration seminar

Presenter: Pieter Bevelander, Professor, Malmö University.

Abstract:
Integration of immigrants and their children in the labour market, housing market and cultural life is at the core of the public and political agenda in many societies. While one of the key rights citizens in democratic societies is to vote in elections, the political integration of immigrants and their descendants is less discussed. Earlier studies on voting participation show a “voting” deficit for immigrants and the second generation (Bevelander and Hutcheson 2021 forthcoming). In this seminar, preliminary results on voting participation are presented from the GOVCIT project where we compare the voting participation of the children of immigrants to that of the natives in Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

The seminar will be held in English and via Zoom
