Intolerance in Western Europe: Analysis of Trends and Associated Factors

Intolerance in Western Europe: Analysis of Trends and Associated Factors. RAND Corporation. Jennifer Rubin et al. January 27, 2014.

The study aims to situate the widely-shared perception of rising intolerance in Western Europe in the context of empirical evidence on high-level trends in intolerant attitudes in Western Europe. Through analysis of European datasets, a review of empirical literature, and assessments of trends in selected individual countries, the report explores whether intolerance has risen more in some countries than others, whether it has risen more against particular groups, if such attitudes are particularly prevalent among subgroups of the population and if there are clear patterns of association with trends in wider political, social, economic and cultural factors.
