Principal Investigator(s): Crage, Suzanna M., University of Pittsburgh; Hughes, Melanie M., University of Pittsburgh; Mohanty, Peter, University of Texas-Austin
This dataset examines the structure of immigration leadership in the European Union (EU) member states as of April 2010. Variables include whether cabinet ministers oversaw immigrant integration, border security or immigration control, or both, whether ministers had overall or supporting responsibilities in either or both arenas, and whether ministers were male or female. Minister name and general ministry attributes, including position (whether ministry position has migration-related word in title), gender type of ministry, and prestige of ministry, have also been provided. Information about ministerial positions in the EU was gathered from an online database as well as ministry and government Web sites and governmental and EU reports.
