Abstract

An evaluation of the residual affects of state sponsored religion within European nations on assimilation of foreign born populations. This paper combines an overview of the historical institutionalism, secularization, and measurements of religion with modern immigration rates. The possibility that religion can be used as an instrumental variable for assimilation is also evaluated.

Keywords: Migrations, Europe, Religion, Institutionalism, Assimilation
