I believe that IZA World of Labor provides a unique and much-needed platform. It allows researchers to communicate, with a wide range of audiences, important and informative scholarly findings on labor market issues in a way that is clear, concise, and easily accessible. I believe this is a very noble contribution and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to be a small part of it, especially on the important topic of public attitudes toward immigration which plays an important role in influencing immigration policy and immigrants’ integration experience
