Abstract [en]

In this thesis I investigate whether the increased refugee immigration from non-OECD countries has affected the support for the Sweden Democrats in the Swedish province of Skåne. I have followed the methodological framework by Andersson et al. (2017) utilizing a refugee placement program in use in Sweden during 1985-1994 and push driven refugee immigration from non-OECD countries to create an instrument variable. The instrument solves the potential endogeneity problem that arise as a consequence of the fact that immigrants’ self-select into municipalities. After analyzing the impact of refugee immigration on electoral outcomes at the state and municipal level between 1998-2010, and the impact at the individual level using survey data between 2004-2011, this thesis concludes that the refugee immigration has not affected the support for the Sweden Democrats in Skåne.
