Abstract

Nous nous proposons d'étudier l'impact que le sentiment anti-immigrés de certains électeurs est susceptible d'avoir sur les propositions que font les partis en matière de politique économique. Nous modélisons la compétition électorale comme ayant lieu entre trois partis (la Gauche, la Droite et l'Extrême-Droite) et portant essentiellement sur deux dimensions (la taille du secteur public et l'immigration). Nous " calibrons " le modèle en utilisant des données d'enquêtes menées durant les années d'élections présidentielles 1988 et 2002, et montrons que l'influence des questions liées à l'immigration sur la taille du secteur public est loin d'être négligeable.
