Impacts of Public Administration’s Workforce Diversity (DiversityImpacts)

Effects on Migration and Immigrant Integration Policy and Public Perceptions of Administrative Action

The DiversityImpacts project aims to investigate public workforce diversity's impacts on policy outputs and public perceptions of administrative action in Germany. It departs from state-of-the-art research on barriers to diversity and innovates by examining the consequences of diversity. Moreover, the research project seeks to discover how far diversity in bureaucracies affects the content of immigration and immigrant integration policy and politics.

Relevant federal ministries and grassroots immigrant organizations will be approached to achieve the project's objectives.

The theoretical framework draws upon representative bureaucracy theory and bureaucratic politicization literature.

The methodological design of the project comprises a comprehensive approach, incorporating

  • a quantitative online survey,
  • a survey experiment,
  • an implicit association test, and
  • eye tracking.

These robust methods will enable rigorous analysis of the examined multifaceted relationships.

The DiversityImpacts project results will advance the basic research on bureaucratic politics, representative bureaucracy, immigration and integration policy and politics, and social cohesion. They will also benefit the administrative practice concerning public human resource management and management of public satisfaction with public policy and administrative action in diverse societies.

Project Duration: 2023 – 2026
