Mobilizing against Citizenship: Voter and Party Responses to the Naturalization of Immigrants

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper investigates how voters and parties respond to and shape a key development taking place across advanced democracies: the naturalization of large numbers of immigrant residents. The paper first argues that the acquisition of citizenship by immigrants can generate opposition among native citizens and that this opposition – rather than the rejection of the inflows of migrants – enlarges the constituency of anti-immigrant parties. Drawing on a new dataset that is the first to include citizenship acquisitions, the paper next demonstrates that as the share of naturalized citizens increases, so does the vote share received by anti-immigrant parties in 18 European countries from the 1970s until today, controlling for a host of other variables. The paper then employs cross-country individual-level data to show that voters who are supportive of immigration but who may object to immigrant residents turning into fellow citizens are disproportionately likely to opt for anti-immigrant parties. It concludes by testing which institutional, political economy, and cultural variables lead voters to welcome immigrants but to reject immigrant citizens.
