Chapter Summary

This chapter aims to investigate whether the Migrant Integration Policy Index (MIPEX) data reveal clear pattern of differences between countries. Basically this amounts to the question whether it is possible to distinguish groups or families of countries that have comparable patterns of integration policies. The chapter first briefly reviews the literature on distinctions in integration regimes, departing from Brubaker's dichotomy. Subsequently, it empirically explores whether country clusters can be detected based on the MIPEX data. The chapter correlates the country clusters with civic and ethnic nationhood survey conceptions to figure out whether the discovered clusters coincide with preferences among the population of those countries. Finally, it identifies some shortcomings of the current analysis and list topics for future research.

Keywords: Brubakers model; civic-ethnic survey; country clusters; immigrant integration; integration regimes; Migrant Integration Policy Index(MIPEX) data
