Outsiders No More?

John Mollenkopf

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses three basic questions about how we study immigrant political incorporation. First, what implications for future research flow from the fact that our models all implicitly assume that immigrants can be potential actors in a democratic context? Second, should future research operate at the level of the individual, group, urban context, nation, or some interaction among them? Finally, what generic shortcomings do current models have and how should we address them in future research? It then attempts to flesh out a better approach to structuring research by comparing the political situation of immigrants in New York and Los Angeles with those of Amsterdam and Berlin.

Keywords:   immigrants, political inclusion, political incorporation, future research, New York, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Berlin
