Ethnic Enclaves and Political Participation

What is the effect of residing in ethnic enclaves on immigrants' future political participation?

In this study we leverage a comprehensive refugee placement reform that was implemented in Sweden in the mid-1980s in combination with unique individual-level turnout data to study the causal impact of ethnic concentration on immigrant voter participation.

This research will be published in The Journal of Politics, Autumn 2021.
