Perceived Discrimination and the Integration Paradox in Stigmatized Neighborhoods
September 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm
Residents of “European Banlieues,” or stigmatized neighborhoods in urban peripheries across Europe, are frequent subjects targets of discrimination. But little research has systematically examined the attitudes of these neighborhoods’ residents. We fill this gap and ask how much discrimination immigrant residents of the most deprived neighborhoods in Sweden perceive, and whether perceived discrimination matters for their political incorporation.
