Abstract
  • This thesis examines the wave of anti immigrant protests in Germany during 2014-15. I examine underlying social, economic and political conditions across the 400 counties that jointly determine the number of protests that occurred. I find that unemployment, a lack of contact with foreigners and strength of the local right wing party are related to higher levels of protests. Counter intuitively, I find that higher levels of education, especially in the East, are related to more protests.
