Interview Data

Transcripts of 302 interviews conducted with self-identified Muslim youth of migrant origin and native youth with affiliation or sympathy with movements labeled far-right in Belgium, France, the Netherlands, and Germany. Local researchers conducted the interviews using the same interview guide, including 17 questions. Interviews were not audio-recorded. The researchers took notes, verifying their transcriptions with the research participant during and after the interview. Originally, the research consisted 307 interviews but five participants (1 French native; 2 German Muslims; 2 German natives) did not want their interview transcriptions to be made public on the ERC data repository site. In accordance with our ethical guidelines, we anonymized the transcripts. The dataset also includes the summary output (as an excel file) of the values analysis of the 307 interviews. Please visit the attachment named Data Summary to learn more about our method of analysis and how to use the attached documents. As a complementary file, we hope that the additional excel sheet detailing the demographic characteristics of our research participants (sex, age, educational background, etc.) helps advance researchers’ understanding of our participant profile.
