Immigration and National Voting
Moriconi, Simone/ Peri, Giovanni/ Turati, Riccardo (2018), Skill of the Immigrants and Vote of the Natives: Immigration and Nationalism in European Elections 2007-2016. National Bureau of Economic Research, NBER Working Papers 25077, Cambridge, MA: National Bureau of Economic Research. This working paper analyses the impact of migration on voters’ decisions in Europe. These decisions vary according to how voters perceive migration as an asset or as a liability to the society. Older and less educated voters perceive migrants differently and migration does not just mobilize former non-voters but changes the voting behavior of broad sections of the society.
