    Cosmopolitanism and Immigration Attitudes

    In progress. Does having a cosmopolitan outlook have an effect on individuals' attitudes towards immigration?

    This project seeks to test our hypothesis that a positive change in individuals’ cosmopolitan outlook should have a corresponding increase in positive attitudes toward immigration. To test this, we devise a nonequivalent groups design quasi-experiment with a control group (composed of subjects not studying abroad) and an experimental/ intervention group (study abroad participant subjects). Our experimental group has been ‘treated’ with what we assume to be the cosmopolitan-inducing effects of cross-border interaction (i.e., study abroad experience).
