The Social Geography of Migration and Preferences

(p.51) 3 The Social Geography of Migration and Preferences
Dilemmas of Inclusion

Rafaela M. Dancygier

Princeton University Press

This chapter describes the preference landscape that parties confront when they contemplate inclusion strategies. In essence, parties face a minority electorate whose preferences and attributes present them with an uneasy ideological fit, but whose votes can swing elections. The chapter then argues that disagreements over social values and norms between non-Muslims and Muslims are greatest where parties face the strongest inclusion pressures, namely in vote-rich neighborhoods in urban areas. Additionally, these areas are most likely to raise conflicts over economic resources, thereby intensifying inclusion dilemmas. The chapter reviews the processes that have led to this preference distribution, explaining how selection mechanisms of the migration process, available housing stock, and enclave formation have served to replicate in Europe's cities the social networks and norms that structure communal life in the sending towns and villages.

Keywords:   preferences, parties, inclusion strategies, minority electorate, Muslims, non-Muslims, migration, housing, enclave formation
