Redistribution and attitudes toward immigrants: A European perspective

Oberdabernig, Doris Anita (25 November 2014). Redistribution and attitudes toward immigrants: A European perspective (Unpublished). In: Research Seminar. Universidad Pablo de Olavide. Sevilla, Spain. 25.11.2014.

We investigate whether the dependence of immigrants on welfare benefits leads to opposition to further immigration by natives and immigrants in a pooled cross-section of 21 European countries for the 2004{2010 period. Explicitly controlling for the dependence of immigrants and natives on benefits we find that higher benefit take-up rates among immigrants than among natives lead to less favourable attitudes of natives towards immigration. Interestingly, we do not find similar stylised facts for immigrants' attitudes towards immigration.
