Pretty Integrated? DFG funding for Dr. Johanna Gereke’s project on immigrants’ physical attractiveness and integration outcomes

The German Research Foundation (DFG) has granted funding for MZES Fellow Dr. Johanna Gereke’s project A3.1909 “Pretty Integrated? The Causes and Consequences of Immigrants’ Physical Attractiveness on Integration Outcomes”.

Given that physical attractiveness on the one hand may be a determinant of integration mechanisms but on the other hand is itself subject to social construction, this project examines the link between immigrants’ perceived physical attractiveness and their economic integration.
