'Pathways to Power' presentation of preliminary findings event

Monday, 15 February, 2016. Seminar Room, Institute for Government, 2 Carlton Gardens, London SW1Y 5AA

15 Feb, 2016, 11:00 - 16:30, London

The project Pathways to Power: The Political Representation of Citizens of Immigrant Origin in Seven European Democracies is a three-year project funded by the research councils of Britain (ESRC), France (ANR), Germany (DFG) and the Netherlands (NWO) since 2014. It has been joined in 2015 by a Belgian sister project funded by UCLouvain, ULB and VUB universities and the Fund of Scientific Research (FNRS). The project studies the political representation of citizens of immigrant origin and its social, political and institutional context in eight European democracies: Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom. The study covers the period from 1990 to the most recent complete national legislatures. It will also include data on the most recent legislative terms of regional assemblies.

At the project’s mid-point, the Pathways research team are delighted to present some preliminary findings relating to the most recent two complete legislative terms in each of the countries studied. Although we are continuing to collect data, we are already in a position to share, and discuss, some first, fascinating findings.

The University of Leicester and the Political Studies Association are pleased to invite interested members of the public to attend the event. The workshop is designed to provide information to a more general audience and academics. It will provide a more detailed overview of the preliminary results and an opportunity for discussion.
