Out now, an extension of the SOM project to Portugal.
Notwithstanding the doubling of the foreign population settled in the country in the early 2000s, the diminished salience and the absence of significant political conflict suggest that immigration failed to become politicized in Portugal.
Happy to see this published, and excellent to see my figures in print so that we can directly compare the results for Portugal with the other seven countries in the original SOM project and the SOM book.

I am happy to announce the official start of the project Support and Opposition in Portugal led by João Carvalho (ISCTE-IUL) officially started with an international workshop in Lisbon. The project team will replicate the SOM study in Portugal. I’m looking forward to see how Portugal compares to the seven ‘original’ countries studied and Italy where Ornella Urso undertook a replication as part of her PhD.
