IRiSS research featured in the Stanford Magazine

Sep 12 2019

The September 2019 issue of the Stanford Magazine included two features on IRiSS research, by the Center on Poverty and Inequality and the Immigration Policy Lab.

CPI's research on the economic struggles and prospects for millennials, subject of the Millennial Dilemma conference and the corresponding Pathways issue, framed the article "Can They Ever Catch Up?" substantiating prevalent narratives of millennials' obstacles with evidence-based research.
IPL's research on "The Salah Effect" has received lots of media attention within and outside Stanford, including a feature in the Economist. Using a multi-method analysis, researchers found that having a Muslim celebrity athlete - Mohamed Salah - on  Liverpool FC diminished the Club's fans' levels of islamophobia compared to other teams' fans. Such a finding can have implications for policymakers' prejudice-reduction efforts.
