Workshop "Actors without Arena" invites your contributions!

Dear colleagues,

we, Sabrina Mayer (DeZIM Berlin & University of Bamberg) and Arndt 
Leininger (Chemnitz University of Technology), are currently organising 
a workshop titled "Actors without arena? Bringing the political 
behaviour of youths and immigrants into the mainstream" which will take 
place in-person from May 13-15 at the Hertie School in Berlin.

The workshop deals with the topic of youths, immigrants, and politics 
and involves an interdisciplinary perspective. So far, these societal 
groups have been largely overlooked and not been taken seriously as 
political actors by both politics and political science. Because they 
make up a relatively small part of the population and many, if not most 
of them, lack electoral eligibility, they do not represent a relevant 
clientele for political actors. Consequently, they represent an 
understudied research object for academic research into political 
behaviour. In our view, this is problematic since the political 
participation of youths and immigrants will become even more important 
in the future against the background of increasing transnational 
migration and demographic change. We believe that the topic has great 
scientific potential since research efforts on youths' and immigrants' 
political beliefs and activities exist in various disciplines. We hope 
that our workshop will provide participants with helpful feedback for 
their research and allow them to broaden their network beyond 
disciplinary boundaries to facilitate future collaborations. We also see 
the workshop as an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of 
youths and immigrants in politics.

We invite contributions from scholars from political science, sociology, 
psychology, or related disciplines who work on the political behaviour 
and attitudes of youths and immigrants using different methodological 
approaches. We ask for submissions by researchers of all career levels 
and especially welcome submissions from early career researchers.

Please send us your extended abstract (max. 300 words) by February 15th 
to arndt.leininger at phil.uni-chemnitz.de and sabrina.mayer at uni-due.de. 
Thanks to funding provided by Fritz Thyssen Foundation, we can cover 
travel costs and accommodation for one presenter per paper. We can also 
cover travel insurance costs due to the insecure travelling situation 
and, if need be, cancellation fees. The workshop will be held in English.

Best wishes

Sabrina & Arndt
