Since the so-called "refugee crisis" in 2015, xenophobic attitudes and attacks against refugees and other migrant groups have increased significantly. Against this background, the research group investigates on the one hand the extent of xenophobia as well as racial discrimination, for example in the context of schools. On the other hand, the group is concerned with the consequences of xenophobia. Among other things, it examines the impact of the increase in xenophobic attacks in a region on local labor and real estate markets.
