Revisiting the relationship
between ethnic diversity
and public goods provision

EthnicGoods2021-12-07T08:14:51+00:00

ETHNICGOODS is a five-year research project funded by a European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Grant. It is hosted by the Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals and led by Dr Matthias vom Hau.

Our goal is to challenge the notion that ethnic diversity dampens public goods such as healthcare or education. We conceive the relationship between these factors as spurious and consider instead the role of the formation of modern nation-states in shaping them. Based on this historical perspective, we will provide new evidence around the developmental consequences of ethnic heterogeneity.
