PACS - Migrationshintergrund und politische Partizipation: Bestimmt das geografische Gebiet das politische Engagement?
- Project duration: October 2021 - October 2024
- Project status: ongoing
Do the geographical areas in which we live determine our political involvement? How does this intersect with origin and resources?
This is what this research aims to examine: the political engagement of people with a migration background in relation to the area in which they live.
In a cross-national study, I aim to compare how individuals with a migration background participate in political groups, organizations, and parties, with a focus on variations between rural and urban areas.
Exploring differences in participation between rural and urban areas among people with a migration background is interesting because it is another factor that sits alongside commonly studied factors such as gender, age, and especially education, which have been shown to play an important role in political engagement rates.
What this research aims to understand is:
1. Do people with a migration background participate more in formal politics such as associations/organisations or political parties?
2. Are there any differences in the mechanisms of political participation in the different geographical contexts, especially between urban and rural areas.
3. What are the reasons for participation in local political activities?
4. Which resources are available for the political participation of people with a migration background in these different areas?
