New evidence on the effect of immigration restrictions on intergenerational cultural transmission

Simone Manzavino (Università di Salerno), Giuseppe Russo (Università di Salerno), Fausto Galli (Università di Salerno)


Restricting immigration forces to settle abroad many individuals who would otherwise prefer circular or return migration because of a high attachment to their origin culture. These individuals tend to convey their cultural values to their children. Consequently, restrictive immigration policies could bring about a lower cultural integration of the second generations. We exploit the 1973 immigration ban in West Germany (Anwebestopp) as a natural experiment to test this hypothesis through a diff-in-diff analysis. Our results show that second generations from parents treated by the Anwebestopp show a higher level of religiosity. This confirms that immigration policies have very far-reaching consequences.
