- Comparative Politics
Dancygier's broad research interests are in comparative politics and comparative political economy. Her research focuses on the domestic consequences of international immigration, the incorporation of immigrants, the political representation of ethnic minorities, and the determinants of ethnic conflict. Her book Immigration and Conflict in Europe (Cambridge University Press, August 2010) explains how immigration regimes and local political economies determine whether or not immigration destinations witness conflict between immigrants and natives, between immigrants and the state, or no conflict at all. Her other work has appeared in the American Journal of Political Science and in edited volumes.
