Abstract

In recent years, Peter has been collaborating with different authors on the topic of ethnocentrism and attitudes toward foreigners (Heyder and Schmidt, 2003; Raijman, Semyonov, and Schmidt, 2003; Semyonov, Raijman, Yom Tov, and Schmidt, 2004; Davidov, Meuleman, Billiet, and Schmidt, 2008). These studies examined different determinants of attitudes toward foreigners and immigration such as East/West Germany, threat perception, human values, political ideology, and income.
