Identifying barriers to Muslim integration in France

Abstract: 
Tests whether there is a Muslim disadvantage in economic integration for second-generation immigrants to Europe. While controlling for potentially confounding factors such as race and country of origin, concludes that there is, and a Muslim is 2.5 times less likely to receive a job interview call-back in France than his or her Christian counterpart.
