How experiences of asylum seekers differ in rural and urban areas.

This project investigates how natives’ personal experiences of asylum seekers are affected by where they live. I use block-randomization to investigate experiences and attitudes to asylum seekers in rural and urban areas that respectively received or did not receive asylum seekers in 2015.
