Study finds public 'biased against Muslim asylum seekers'
An anti-Muslim "bias" is apparent in attitudes towards asylum seekers among Europeans, a new study suggests.
Researchers found that people were more likely to "accept" Christian asylum seekers, while those with higher employability and severe vulnerabilities were also said to be favoured.
The findings emerged after 18,000 citizens across 15 countries, including the UK, were asked to evaluate 180,000 hypothetical profiles of asylum seekers that randomly varied on attributes such as gender, age, occupational skills, religion and country of origin.
