Macroeconomic volatility and anti-refugee violence in developing countries: Evidence from commodity price shocks

This paper examines the effect of macroeconomic volatility on anti-refugee violence in developing countries. The author focuses on exogenous commodity price shocks since commodity exports constitute a substantial share of national income for most developing countries and changes in world commodity prices are exogenous to each developing country. The analysis covers a sample of 98 low- and middle-income refugee-hosting countries between 1996 and 2015.
