Immigration, Religion and Race in the U.S. and Europe - Politics in an era of populism

Terri Givens, Provost and Professor, Menlo College
Thursday, October 5, 2017
4:00-5:30 PM
Eldersveld Room, 5670 Haven Hall Haven Hall Map
Immigration has been an important topic in elections in Europe since the rise of the Front National in France in the 1980s. In the last year the far right has seen mixed results, but immigration has played an important role for populist politicians on both sides of the Atlantic. In Europe, Islamic terrorism and the refugee issue has played a key role in raising the salience of the immigration issue. In the U.S., undocumented immigration from Latin America and the spread of immigrants to new regions of the country has also raised the salience of the issue. Using evidence from previous research, including research examining the importance of the salience of the immigration issue, Professor Givens will examine the connection between immigration, religion and race and the rise of populist politicians in the U.S. and Europe.
