Giovanni Peri and Coauthors publish in the European Economic Review

The article by GMC Director Giovanni Peri and coauthors, published in the European Economic Review, analyzes the impact of local immigration on natives’ preferences for “nationalism” as captured by parties’ programs in European election data between 2007 and 2016. They estimate that larger inflows of highly-educated immigrants were associated with a decrease in the “nationalistic” vote of natives, while less-educated immigrants produced an opposite-direction shift towards nationalistic parties.
