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

Abstract: 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.
