TALK: Why Muslim Integration Fails in Christian-Heritage Societies

David Laitin (Political Science, Stanford University)
Wednesday, March 8, 2017/ 4:00 PM
Lane Room, 3824 Ellison Hall

Professor Laitin will speak on his recent book (with Claire Adida and Marie-Anne Valfort) , Why Muslim Integration Fails in Christian-Heritage Societies (Harvard; 2016). In 2008-2009, with support from the National Science Foundation, and with a visiting appointment at Sciences-Po Paris, Laitin conducted ethnographic, survey and experimental research on Muslim integration into France, seeking to assess the magnitude of religious discrimination and isolate the mechanisms that sustain it.
