Abstract: Generous welfare policies are sometimes considered to be incompatible with influx of immigrants. This statement corroborates the group threat theory according to which social security is a privilege of the majority. However, it is also considered that generous welfare reduces anti-immigrant hostility by alleviating economic vulnerability of a country’s citizens. This study analyzes the relationship between welfare and anti-immigrant attitudes. It pays attention to the differences between active welfare policies and passive welfare policies, since they have different ideological bases and can have opposing effects on anti-immigrant attitudes; active policies are based on individualism, which may in turn weaken anti-immigrant attitudes while passive policies based on solidarity, which may in turn strengthen anti-immigrant attitudes. From the analysis of the cross-national data (World Value Surveys), the following results are found. In countries that allocate large budgets for active welfare policies, the citizens become more tolerant toward immigrants. Moreover, those who are unemployed become more likely to accept the equal distribution of resources between themselves and immigrants. On the contrary, in countries that allocate large budgets for passive welfare policies, the citizens have more of an exclusionary attitude toward immigrants. Although both policies reduce vulnerability to a certain extent, passive welfare is likely to be perceived as a privilege exclusively for citizens. Therefore, generous passive welfare can lead to the perception of group threats, unlike active welfare policies.

Abstract: The psychology of analogical reasoning, a specific form of causal thinking, provides an excellent model of the individual for a theory of policy diffusion. We extend this theory of policy diffusion to its next logical step: policy analysis and program evaluation. We expect that in situations where policy diffusion typically occurs, the nature of the analogy utilized to justify the diffusion of the policy should indicate the likelihood of policy success. In situations where analogies are backed by solid causal theory, the likelihood of success should be higher than for situations where analogy use is less sound. We empirically test this theory using the diffusion of eighteen different state renewable energy policies that were designed to encourage the construction of wind turbines. Our analysis reveals that the analogical reasoning that influenced the adoption of these policies was not always correctly associated with an important causal component – the availability of wind.
