Individual and contextual explanations of attitudes towards immigration
Article de la Prof. Eva G. T. Green & Dr. Oriane Sarrasin paru dans "The Routledge Companion to Migration, Communication, and Politics"
The Routledge Companion to Migration, Communication and Politics brings together academics from numerous disciplines to show the legal, political, communicative, theoretical, methodological, and media implications of migration. The collection makes the compelling case that migration does not occur in a vacuum; rather, it is driven by and reacts to various factors, including the political, economic, and cultural worlds in which individuals live.
The Chapter 19 of Prof.Eva Green and Dr.Oriane Sarrasin introduces multilevel research examining the interplay of individual and contextual accounts of anti-immigration attitudes and radical right-wing voting. This approach allows for examining how the attitudes of individuals are shaped by the socio-structural and normative contexts in which they develop, over and above the individual-level determinants of these attitudes. Research conducted in Switzerland is presented to exemplify this research approach.
