  • About

    Jennifer Miller-Gonzalez is a WCED Research Fellow for the 2014-15 academic year. Her primary research interests revolve around the topics of race and ethnicity and party politics in Western Europe. Her dissertation examined why some mainstream center-right parties in Western Europe seek the votes of immigrant-origin ethnic minorities at some times and not others. Her current research examines how political parties in Western Europe transform immigrants into citizens, and the politics of policy investment with a focus on diversity policy.
