The citizenry of West-European countries is increasingly diversifying. However, much of the literature continues to focus on integration policies for newly arriving migrants, as opposed to equality and anti-discrimination policies targeted at citizens with a migration background. This PhD project explores how European countries respond to persisting inequalities faced by citizens of migrant origin by studying policy frames regarding ethno-racial inequalities in Belgian and German education and employment policy. Using critical frame analysis, the project shows how ethno-racial inequalities in education and employment are conceived and framed in public policy and how variation in these policy frames might be explained.
