Babak Hemmatian, Lav R. Varshney
2022 arXiv   pre-print

Americans preferred Syrian refugees who are female, English-speaking, and Christian on the eve of Donald Trump's election

Claire L. Adida, Adeline Lo, Melina R. Platas, Bryan L. Sykes
2019 PLoS ONE  
Finally, we find that anti-Muslim bias in refugee preferences varies in magnitude across key subgroups, though it prevails across all sample demographics.  ...  We find that the preference for female refugees is not driven by the desire to exclude Muslim male refugees, casting doubt that American preferences at the time were motivated by security concerns.  ...  In the below analysis, only the anti-Muslim bias was preregistered. All other tests and results are pattern discoveries.  ...

Patrick L Mason, Andrew Matella
2014 IZA Journal of Migration  
This paper uses self-identification as white as its measure of acculturation and the fraction of all hate crimes directed at Muslims as its measure of stigmatization after 9/11.  ...  The Al Qaeda attacks clearly demarcate a period in which there was a structural increase in the intensity of US stigmatization of persons with Islamic religious affiliation and Arab ethnicity.  ...  For each state and each period, "Anti-Muslim Hate Crimes -Percent" includes all the period's single-bias anti-Muslim hate crimes divided by the period's total hate crimes.  ...

An Overview of Islamophobia as Othering

Ahmad Saeed
2019 Global Mass Communication Review  
The concept of othering means to consider the Muslims community as others in the society, especially in the western countries.  ...  In fact, hundreds year before the concept of othering was used against Muslims of Spain, whom were forced to immigrate neighbor countries.
