This chapter examines the profiles of immigrant origin (IO) MPs in terms of social backgrounds and previous careers in eight European democracies: Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. The first research goal of this chapter is rather descriptive as we examine the extent to which IO MPs present different social backgrounds and career paths to parliaments in comparison with non-IO MPs. Are they any different from the ‘average’ non-IO MPs? Are they more or less representative of the voters than non-IO MPs? Do IO MPs follow the same career paths to the parliamentary arena than the rest of the MPs, or do they differ significantly from them? Based on the empirical findings to these questions, the second research goal is to identify patterns of convergence and divergence in the recruitment of non-IO MPs within and across the eight democracies under examination. The establishment of regional/national patterns is a preliminary and necessary condition for further and more refined ‘explanatory’ research studying the causes of cross-national variance. [less ▲]

In this chapter, the authors identify and explain variation in the mayors’ political career by identifying different career patterns. First, they focus on pre-mayoral experience examining seniority in municipal council and other political positions prior to the mayoral mandate. Second, they examine the professionalisation of mayors in office. Third, they analyze mayors’ ambition to remain in local politics or move on towards upper tiers of government. Mayors’ different career paths question the interconnectedness between the tiers of government as well as the emergence of local political actors across these levels. This empirical analysis shows that European mayoral careers are primarily locally oriented in terms of recruitment, occupation and future ambition. Differences within and across countries, however, can be explained by the specific national institutional and municipal socio-demographics configurations. [less ▲]

In multilevel systems, patterns of regional and national political careers reflect processes of regionalisation and federalisation. Yet the effects of regionalism on the orientation of legislative careers remain disputed. Such disputes result from the choice of the unit of analysis, the scarcity of comparative research across countries and over time, and bias in case selection. This article offers a systematic intranational comparative analysis of ‘sister regions’ in four countries that are examples of weak and strong regionalism. It tests the regionalism hypothesis based on an original comparative dataset of 4662 regional and national political careers in Belgium, Canada, Spain, and the UK. The results demonstrate that regionalism matters: regional legislative elites emerge more clearly in polities in which regionalism is stronger. The regionalism hypothesis is particularly supported in Spain and Canada, which have a longer history of regional institutions, but that trend is also confirmed in the UK and Belgium. [less ▲]

The political impact of metaphors has often been taken for granted from metaphor analysis in political discourse. Indeed, the framing function of metaphors, known as their ability to "select some aspects of a perceived reality and make it more salient in a communicating context" (Entman, 1993: 52) has often been established on the basis of the production of metaphors in particular kind of political discourse, but has not been directly studied from the perspective of their impact on citizens' representations and political preferences until recently Perrez & Reuchamps (2015). Recent research on the subject however points to contradicting results. Whereas Thibodeau and Boroditsky (2011, 2013, 2015) observed that different metaphorical frames related to the target domain of crime led the citizens to opt for different policies, Steen and colleagues (2014, 2015) could not find similar evidence in a series of replication studies. This led them to suggest that the impact of metaphors on (political) reasoning was not automatic, but could be influenced by other parameters, such as extendedness, aptness or deliberateness (Steen et al 2015). A more recent study conducted by Dodeigne, Perrez & Reuchamps (2016) on the impact of a Tetris metaphor on the perception of Belgian federalism also suggested that the potential impact of metaphors on reasoning could interact with the level of political knowledge of the citizens. More specifically, the citizens with a lower level of political knowledge appeared to be more likely to be influenced by the metaphor, than the citizens with a higher level of political knowledge. Bearing on these different insights, this paper aims at studying under which circumstances metaphors can influence citizens' political reasoning, by more specifically looking into the exact role played by the level of political knowledge. To do so, we conducted two experiments among approx. 1200 first year bachelor students focusing on their perception of and preferences towards the concept of basic income. More specifically, we designed three different versions of an input text, each based on a different metaphorical frame (respectively a foundation frame, a pocket money frame and a springboard frame). The participants were distributed into different experimental conditions (2 control conditions and 3 metaphorical conditions) according to the type of input they had been exposed to, and were subsequently asked to perform a free description task and to fill in a questionnaire measuring different dimensions of their level of political knowledge on the one hand and their preferences regarding the introduction of a system of basic income on the other hand. This experimental design should allow us to determine the influence of the different metaphorical frames on the citizens preferences, but also to determine to what extent this potential influence of metaphors interact with the level of political knowledge of the participants. The results are currently under analysis and will be presented in detail at the conference [less ▲]

Political parties need to act as unitary actors in parliaments to implement their policy goals. The literature has acknowledged that candidate selection process is one of the most powerful tools for a party to achieve and maintain internal cohesion within the parliamentary group. Political parties that do not win election cannot develop their policy goals though. Candidate selection processes present thus two – potentially conflicting – objectives: vote-seeking strategy (recruiting ‘popular candidates’) and policy-seeking strategy (enlisting ‘party soldiers’). The personalization of politics, where electoral campaigns are increasingly personal while eroding the role of issues and ideology in voting behaviour, enhances the tensions between parties’ vote-seeking and policy-seeking strategies. According to some scholars, the former even prevails over the other which causes critical consequences for the functioning of parties in legislature and the broader democratic political systems. However, in line with more recent development in the literature, we argue that personalization is not necessarily a zero-sum game: political parties can balance tickets using both strategies. In that configuration, one strategy interacts with the other, rather than prevail over the other. Using an innovative and consistent measurement of candidate-party congruence, we test this interaction on the recruitment of candidates at the 2014 Belgian elections. Overall, our results prove that vote-seeking strategy matters but heavily depends on policy-seeking strategy. It demonstrates that parties use both strategies as a trade-off to balance their lists, even though vote-seeking strategy ultimately prevails for a substantial number of candidates studied. The results call for a more positive normative account of the personalization thesis. The later has the potential to keep voters, candidates and parties connected in the representation process.

As an interdisciplinary research team, we seek to tackle one important question: what is the impact of metaphors on recipients? In this context, we propose to present two experiments we conducted that both aim at measuring the impact of metaphors on citizens’ perception of and opinion on two political issues, that is Belgian federalism, and the basic income. Our first experiment was based on a newspaper article from Le Soir (July 2013) in which Belgian federalism was compared to a Tetris game. 500 participants were distributed across four experimental conditions according to the type of input they were exposed to, i.e. no input, text and image, text only and image only. They were asked to perform three interrelated tasks: a free description task, a picture association task, and a questionnaire measuring their attitude towards Belgian federalism. The results suggest that the participants who had been exposed to the experimental text tended to frame their perception of Belgian federalism differently from the other participants. However, these results suggest that reading a text might have an influence on citizens’ representations, but they do not allow us to determine the specific role played by the Tetris metaphor. We therefore developed a follow-up experiment for which we produced two different versions of the experimental text: one version where the Tetris metaphor remained explicit and a second version where this metaphor was left out. This experiment was conducted among 600 participants distributed across 3 conditions: no input, metaphorical text and non-metaphorical text. This second design should allow us to further assess to what extent the Tetris-metaphor does in fact have an impact on citizens’ representations of Belgian federalism. Our second experiment aims at measuring to what extent metaphors might have an impact on citizens’ opinion on the idea of basic income. This experiment was conducted among 750 participants who were distributed across seven experimental conditions. For the first condition, there was no input at all. The second condition consisted of a simple text explaining in a few words what the basic income is. The third, fourth and fifth condition presented the same text, but with three different metaphors added to the text, comparing the basic income to respectively allowance money, a springboard and a base frame. The two final conditions presented a non-metaphorical version of the third, fourth and fifth condition. The results of both experiments will be the main topic of our contribution. [less ▲]

The 2014 “mother of all elections” in Belgium offers a unique opportunity to test whether candidate selection for regional and federal elections work alike or differently. The fact that Belgian “statewide” parties do not exist anymore and that Belgium is a quasi-closed list system, giving parties almost unlimited control over candidate selection enhances the uniqueness of the Belgian case. This article verifies whether these “regional” parties select candidates according to different methods for both elections and whether candidates for both elections display different attributes. Our exploratory analysis draws on in-depth interviews with party actors, on the 2014 Belgian Candidate Survey and on an extensive database of regional and federal parliamentary/executive careers since 1991. Our results show that selection procedures strongly differ across parties but hardly within parties regarding regional and federal elections. Besides, regarding candidates’ attributes, only few differences were found between levels. Hence, both levels seem to work alike. [less ▲]
