What’s in a Name? - An ethnical discrimination experiment
Abstract: This paper presents the results from an ethnical
discrimination experiment that was conducted in one of Sweden’s most
“problematic” cities with respect to the integration process of refugees.
The subjects confronted three different bargaining games; one trust game,
one social exclusion and coalition formation game; and one battle of the
sexes game. No general discrimination effect was detected. However, one
specific effect was that Non-Swedes were less likely to be chosen as
bargaining partners in the coalition formation game. Another specific
effect was found in the males’ trust and ultimatum responses; Non-Swedes
had higher returns on being generous compared to Swedes.
