Residents of “European Banlieues,” or stigmatized neighborhoods in urban peripheries across Europe, are frequent subjects targets of discrimination.

We fill this gap and ask how much discrimination immigrant residents of the most deprived neighborhoods in Sweden perceive, and whether perceived discrimination matters for their political incorporation.
