Didier Ruedin is a senior lecturer at the Swiss Forum for Migration and Population Studies at the University of Neuchâtel.
How and why are immigrants excluded?
I use experiments and quantitative analysis to examine discrimination in the labour and housing market, attitudes to foreigners, and political reactions in policies and political debates: how potential conflicts over exclusion become politicized.
