What to expect when you’re electing : the relationship between far-right strength and citizenship policy in Europe

Hansen, Michael A. LU and Clemens, Jennifer L. LU (2018) In Comparative European Politics
Abstract

The analysis builds on previous research exploring the impact of far-right support on citizenship policy. Using Bayesian analyses, this research evaluates the impact of far-right success on citizenship policy restrictiveness and citizenship policy outcomes per year across 29 European countries between 2003–2014. Results reveal that far-right success is a statistically and substantively significant factor in determining citizenship policy restrictiveness as well as rates of naturalization. However, differential levels of impact suggest that far-right influence is not uniform throughout the policy process.
