Abstract

This study considers two hypothesizes; higher immigration levels lead to higher levels of political instability; higher immigration assimilation leads to higher political stability. This study uses measures of immigration and assimilation for all OECD member countries in 2007, and the study uses measures of political stability from Fund for Peace’s Fragile State Index. The results of the data find no support for either hypothesis. Furthermore, more studies in this field need to be conducted in order to determine the effects of immigration over longer periods and to determine the reasons for the findings of the study.
