Prof. Steinhardt hielt am 12. Februar 2020 am WZB einen Vortrag mit dem Titel "The Impact of Xenophobic Violence on the Integration of Immigrants". 

Ein kurzer Überblick zum Inhalt:

Integration of immigrants is a two-way process involving immigrants and the host country society. An underexplored question is how xenophobic violence in host countries affects integration. Exploiting a unique series of hate crimes in Germany using a difference-in-differences matching strategy, I find that exposure to xenophobic violence has an impact on several dimensions of immigrants‘ socio-economic integration. In particular, it reduces subjective well-being and investment in German language skills, while it increases return intentions. Therefore, this paper demonstrates that anti-immigrant violence has indirect costs by impairing the integration of those immigrants who belong to the target group of xenophobic attacks.
