In Brief

About the project

Processes of immigration have resulted in greater ethnic and cultural diversity in liberal democratic societies. While this social diversity is increasingly reflected in the number of people of different backgrounds in public offices and with public mandates, we are still far from achieving equal representation of people with a migrant background in local, federal state, or national parliaments. This group still lacks the same opportunities in accessing potentially influential positions in politics and society. 
But why? The “Repchance” project sees researchers conduct a comparative study across five different European countries to establish which factors promote or hinder the political or social careers of people with a migrant background.
