Impact of extreme right parties on immigration politics and policy


This research plan addresses the topics of the politics of international migration, the politics of integration of foreign citizens and their access to national citizenships, the impact of extreme right parties on their domestic political systems, the electoral inroads of the members of this party family, and the strategies of mainstream parties towards the extremist parties. These investigations will be mostly supported by the deployment of qualitative research strategies based upon qualitative comparative analysis drawing on small-N or single-case analysis. Cooperation at the international level will be developed to elaborate co-authored pieces of research and to set up multidisciplinary research teams to work on research projects. Lastly, the research plan aims to establish my profile as international specialist on the politics of international migration and extreme right parties, and thereby enhance the internationalisation of CIES-IUL.
