I’m happy to announce that a paper I’ve drafted with Eva Zschirnt has won 2nd place for the IMISCOE Rinus Penninx Best Paper Award. In the paper we provide a proper meta-analysis of ethnic discrimination in hiring decision, summarizing the results of 627 correspondence tests carried out between 1990 and 2015. We show that despite the introduction of anti-discrimination legislation, discrimination against ethnic and racial minorities remains prevalent in the hiring process. What is more, there does not appear to be any systematic link between the economic situation and the incidence of discrimination.
