Article “Refugees Welcome?”

Interesting article about the connection between the housing of refugees and the electoral success of the AfD

Dr. Christian Stecker and Prof. Dr. Marc Debus have scrutinized the connection between the housing of refugees and the electoral success of the right-wing populist party AfD in Bavaria. The results show that the shelters for refugees have led to vote gains for the AfD at the Federal Election 2017 in particular in rural areas and in the context of socio-economic deprivation and in constituencies where right-wing extremist parties have been successful in the past. The results are published in the Politische Vierteljahresschrift(online first).
