About this Research Topic
In this Research Topic, we aim to provide a platform for researchers to present new insight on migration and immigrants in Europe that has a sound theoretical foundation and is based on empirical evidence. We particularly welcome contributions related to cultural, attitudinal or value-related differences between individuals with and without an immigrant background, or between different migrant minorities in Europe. Are European cultures changing due to their increasing diversity? And if so, is this diversity contributing to a more inclusive society or, on the contrary, is it promoting exclusionary processes by boosting previously latent cleavages? Is it possible to identify the mechanisms underlying observed changes? And are these mechanisms similar across different migrant minorities in different countries? And finally, what is the role of the origin culture compared with that of the hosting population majority? Can we identify common patters between migrant minorities across countries or, are such patterns country specific? Due to the diversity of topics that the theme may inspire, different perspectives are very welcome, whether of a qualitative or a quantitative nature.
We ask for contributions of no more than 10,000 words excluding tables, figures, and references. All contributions will be reviewed in a single-blind process. Deadline for submissions will be September 2019.
