Session 10_ Lecture 5_ Are Southern European Descendants Discriminated in Northen Europe?
This session will again present evidence from ongoing research carried out at the D-Lab and based on the GEMM discrimination study. In this case we will focus on the discrimination of Southern-European descendants in Northern European job markets. This research proposes a placebo test to distinguish between two drivers of ethnic discrimination: outgroup rejection and ingroup favouritism, as well as a diagnostic test to identify statistical vs taste-based discrimination mechanisms. Students are expected to read at least one of the two starred papers in preparation for the in-class discussions.
