Which claims do migrants as “new” minorities hold, and how do they compare to those held by “old” national minorities? The most obvious approach to answer this question would be to just go and ask them for their opinions, but surprisingly, this has rarely been taken up in scientific studies, which are often conducted about migrants, but not with them. We aimed to address this shortcoming through a quantitative survey and qualitative expert interviews with migrants in Euregio, a a cross-border region consisting South Tyrol, Tyrol and Trentino.
