Immigration, Attitudes of Natives and Immigrants Assimilation

Project description

Attitudes toward migrant integration

Immigration is today the subject of wide-ranging debate. Europe's latest wave of migrants triggered strong and diverse reactions by host societies. How host societies react contributes to a warm or chilly welcome and can determine the success or failure of the immigrant integration process. The EU-funded Long-term migration project will analyse the long-term effects of migration on natives’ reactions to migrants as well as the mechanisms that determine such native attitudes. By focusing on first and second-generation migrants, the project will explore whether attitudes of natives towards migration have long-term economic consequences.

Objective

The aim of this project is to analyse the long-term effects of immigration on attitudes of natives towards immigration, as well as the mechanisms through which immigration may affect natives’ attitudes. Moreover, I plan to study whether attitudes of natives towards migration have long-term economic consequences, particularly on the ability of immigrants to integrate in the natives’ society, by analysing economic outcomes of first and second generation migrants. The identification strategy relies on instrumental variables, combined with machine learning methods for causal inference.
