“My concern is the inclusion of Muslims in Western Europe. These are dark times; all the more reason therefore to see if there is a way forward. What I aim to bring into the open is how far majorities are willing to go to be inclusive, where they draw the line, and why they draw it there and not elsewhere.”
Paul Sniderman, Fairleigh Dickinson, Jr. Professor of Public Policy, Stanford University
Sniderman’s research focuses on multiculturalism and politics in Western Europe and spatial reasoning. He coauthored The Struggle for Inclusion: Muslims and Liberal Democracy (University of Chicago Press, 2020) with Elisabeth Ivarsflaten. He has published many other books, including When Ways of Life Collide: Multiculturalism and Its Discontents in the Netherlands (Princeton University Press, 2007) with Louk Hagendoorn, Reasoning and Choice, The Scar of Race, Reaching beyond Race, The Outsider, and Black Pride and Black Prejudice, in addition to a plethora of articles. He initiated the use of computer-assisted interviewing to combine randomized experiments and general population survey research.Sniderman received his B.A. degree (philosophy) from the University of Toronto and his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of California, Berkeley.
