Abstract:

« Ma recherche se situe dans le cadre de l’exil politique colombien en Suisse romande. Elle est tout particulièrement axée sur le processus d’intégration des réfugiés politiques colombiens dans la société suisse. Dans mon idéal, je voudrais donner la parole à ceux qui ne sont pas écoutés et peut-­être pouvoir leur octroyer la place qu’ils méritent comme n’importe quel acteur social. »

Personality and Voting for a Right-Wing Populist Party – Evidence from Switzerland

Author(s) : Kathrin Ackermann, Eros Zampieri, Markus Freitag

Abstract:

« Many established democracies are currently challenged by populist parties and movements. Switzerland is a particularly interesting case because it has an established right‐wing populist party that is part of the governmental coalition on a regular basis: the Swiss People’s Party (SVP). We study the electoral success of the SVP from a psychological perspective and argue that dispositions captured by the Big Five personality traits are related to voting for the SVP. Analyzing data from the Swiss Electoral Study (Selects) 2015, we find support for a negative relationship between openness to experience and agreeableness and voting for the SVP as well as a positive relationship between conscientiousness and extraversion and voting for this right‐wing populist party. Additional analyses indicate that attitudes toward immigration mediate these relationships to some degree. Agreeableness and conscientiousness are, however, still systematically related to voting for the SVP when attitudinal factors are controlled for. »

Migration, migrant integration and support for social spending: The case of Switzerland

Author(s) : Dennis Spies, Alexander Schmidt-Catran

Abstract:

« An extensive body of scholarship has claimed that the relationship between migration and the welfare state is a potentially troublesome one, because the native population might be concerned about the fiscal, economic and cultural threats this poses. At the same time, studies have argued that ‘migrants differ’, not only in their actual numbers but also in their similarities or differences compared with the native population. Taking these differences into account, we analyse the effect of the integration of migrants for natives’ support for welfare. In detail, we test for the possibility that the integration of migrants might have a direct impact on the economic and cultural difficulties which natives associate with migration and in this way will have an indirect effect on their support for social spending. Our results show that the objective integration of migrants has only limited relevance for the relationship between migration and welfare support and point to the need to focus on subjectively perceived migration- and integration-related attitudes of natives. »
