Sarah Schneider-Strawczynski is a Ph.D. student from Paris School of Economics and the university Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne in 2021. She is an applied microeconomist who studies migration economics and political economy using a variety of econometric designs and a wide range of data, from administrative employer-employee data to survey data and big data. Her research notably sheds light on the economic and political drivers and consequences of attitudes toward immigration. In that framework, she studies the impact of the refugee migration on the vote for the far-right in France in her paper “When is Contact Effective? Evidence on Refugee Hosting and Far-Right Support in France”, which she presents for this edition of Economics for everybody.
