Defending or Damaging Democracy Legal Action against Anti-immigrant Parties in Europe and its Effects on their Electoral Support

PhD student: Sjifra de Leeuw MSc

The aim of this project is to understand the impact of legal prosecution of Anti-Immigrant Parties (or one of their members). In particular, the project focuses on the electoral and societal consequences of these actions. Special attention will be paid to the role of the media in shaping citizens’ reactions to these actions.

The project mainly relies on longitudinal and cross-sectional data analysis techniques, using survey and electoral data. This PhD project is conducted within the framework of the larger NWO (Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) Vidi project ‘Defending or Damaging Democracy: Legal Action against Anti-immigrant Parties in Europe and its Effects on their Electoral Support’ supervised by Dr. Joost van Spanje
