Abstract

Migration has turned into one of the most politicized issues in Europe, with the summer of migration in 2015-2016 adding an additional twist to the framing of the question. This panel explores the politicization of migration from various perspectives, such as political parties’ framing of the issues and governmental and media discourse. Moreover, the panel contributes to an evaluation of the politicization of immigration at various levels, in particular at the European level and within selected EU member states. Papers in the panel compare the salience of the issue over time, and evaluate the effects of external shocks, such as the 2008 economic crisis, but also the Covid19 crisis, on the salience of the topic.
