Media attention and framing in relation to immigration policies in the Netherlands (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The central research question is: What patterns are recognizable in the scale and framing of media-attention of individual and group cases related to immigration policies? This involves four more specific sub-questions that speak to the central concepts of this research.

  1. What patterns of media-attention can be identified for the different types of immigration cases?
  2. What are the main frames in media coverage - in terms of problem definition, proposed solution and persons who are held responsible?
  3. What actors are represented in media-attention and what strategies do they use to influence media-attention and framing?
  4. What impact did media-attention and framing have on the political and policy-agenda?
