Foreign Fighters in Syria and Iraq and the socio-economic environment they faced at home: a comparison of European countries
Philip Verwimp ()
No 201, HiCN Working Papers from Households in Conflict Network
The contribution looks at the gap in labour market and school outcomes between first and second generation migrants and non-migrants in European countries. It correlates these socio-economic data with the number of foreign fighters per million inhabitants. Far from offering a full, causal and micro-level model to understand the story completely, the contribution finds a clear and robust pattern across Europe.
