Pane e Cioccolata: The impact of native attitudes on return migration

Augustin de Coulon, Dragos Radu () and Max Steinhardt ()

No 146, HWWI Research Papers from Hamburg Institute of International Economics (HWWI)

Abstract: This paper addresses the potentially causal link between native attitudes and migrants' intended duration of stay. We exploit the variation in perceived anti-immigrant sentiments using information on the media exposure of Romanian migrants in Italy. A unique shock in public attitudes towards Romanian migrants allows us to identify the impact of a change in attitudes on out-migration plans. Our results suggest a significant impact of native attitudes on settlement intentions in Italy. The subgroup analysis indicates a particularly pronounced impact for low-skilled migrants, which has important consequences for the integration prospects of migrants in Italy.
