Do ethnic minority politicians play a meaningful role in Western Europe? How do European publics feel about non white politicians? How are political parties reaching out to ethnic minority communities, and how do those communities feel about their political influence? Addressing these increasingly critical questions, the authors of Immigrant Politics explore the realities, possibilities, and problems of ethnic minority and migrant political participation in Western Europe. Their combination of thematic chapters and country studies provides a thorough overview of the politics of race and representation in the region.
