Now available online: How Political Reception Contexts Shape Location Decisions of Immigrants

How do immigrants decide where to live once they have come to live in a country? We ran a conjoint survey experiment to establish that both political and economic factors play a role.

Indeed, these political factors are often neglected in the literature: the parties in power, the integration policies, etc. Here we used a representative sample of recently arrived immigrants to show that the political context is just as important as economic considerations (taxes, etc.).

The article is now available online, open access for everyone to read.
