Abstract [en]

With this paper I intend to contribute to the ongoing research on political participation through the participation of foreign-born demonstration participants in Sweden. Research on political participation of immigrants show that they generally participate less than natives. One theory is that recruitment networks and organization membership have more importance for immigrants than for natives due to higher thresholds for political participation. Research has also indicated differences in participation of immigrants depending on country of origin, such that participants from non-western repressive regimes tend to participate less than participants from western non-repressive regimes. The results of the study are based on survey data from 1748 participants in two types of demonstrations, May day marches and climate change demonstrations. Analysis led to three main findings. First, participants not born in Sweden participate less in both demonstration types than the those born in the country. Second, there are few, if any, differences between the groups in the same type of demonstration and also often between the two demonstration types when it comes to factors that favor political participation. Finally, the group not born in Sweden is not representative of the group in the population, based on country of birth.
