What is it about?

In this book we look at who talks about immigrants and how they do it. We use a systematic analysis of the media in 7 countries over 15 years to present a detailed picture of how different political actors refer to and politicize immigration and immigrants.

Why is it important?

We hear a lot about the radical right and populist parties, so it's easy to forget that other political actors also talk about immigration.

This is the book coming out of the SOM project, where I was heavily involved in all aspects. I drew all the figures of the book.
