Norface Mifare Project

Migrants’ Welfare State Attitudes

The MIFARE project is among the first to focus on migrants’ attitudes towards the welfare state. Due to migrants’ socialization in different welfare regimes, and their often disadvantaged socio-economic positions, the migrant perspective provides a unique opportunity to test the central theories in the field on the role of self-interest, group-loyalty and of socialization in different welfare regimes. We study migrants’ welfare state attitudes, and explain differences across migrant groups, as well as differences compared to the overall public opinion in the country of origin and the host country. Within the project harmonized and unique data are collected among migrants in the destination countries Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands.
