S. Karthick Ramakrishnan

University of California, Riverside

Research Initiative:

Ramakrishnan will write a book that examines the contours and determinants of American public opinion on immigration. Using survey data and embedded survey experiments from 2006 through 2010, he will analyze the relative importance of racial prejudice, partisanship, economic anxiety, and rule-of-law concerns in shaping American attitudes towards immigrants and immigration policy. His project will also consider the ways in which public opinion on immigration may be similar to opinion on race-related issues such as affirmative action, and economic issues such as trade and offshoring.
