Immigration and Support for the Welfare State: Local and Institutional Responses
The project studies how different forms of immigration affect the political support of the welfare state. We understand the welfare state's political support as depending on the preferences of voters and parties, as well as on the strength of institutions in the labor market (trade unions).
We study responses to immigration using individual data (survey and administrative data), regional data and cross-national data. Using various types of natural experiments, we try to uncover causal effects of immigration.
