Antecedents of ethnic employment discrimination in public organizations

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


We argue that poor performing organizations are more likely to discriminate against ethnic minority job applicants. We conduct a field experiment in 72 Danish public schools. We merge these data with administrative data. Results show that minority applicants experience a higher callback rate from better performing schools.
