Didier Ruedin

Portrait Didier RuedinDidier Ruedin is a senior researcher at the Swiss Forum for Migration and Population Studies at the University of Neuchâtel.

I use experiments and quantitative analysis to understand social inequalities and exclusion as a consequence of migration. My research examines discrimination in the labour and housing market, attitudes to foreigners, and political reactions in policies and political debates: how, when, and why potential conflicts become politicized. In this context, I measure party positions on immigration, and examine the political representation and participation of women and ethnic groups in national legislatures.
