Political efficacy and confidence among migrants.

Eva Anduiza Perea, Josep San Martin Morant

Research output: Chapter in BookChapterResearch


Attitudes are fundamental aspects of migrants’ relation to the political system where they live. Do they consider themselves able to understand and influence political decisions, or do they feel politics in their country of residence is not their business? Do migrants think that the political system is sensitive to their demands, or do they feel they can’t really have a say? Do they trust the political institutions of the country where they live? It would be hard to argue that these are not crucial elements of the degree of migrants’ political incorporation into their countries of residence.
