    The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Leipzig in co-operation with the Heinrich Boell Foundation, the Rosa-Luxemburg Foundation and the Otto-Brenner foundation.

    It also examined extreme right-wing views towards other groups in Germany.

    “While general prejudice against migrants fell slightly, the focus of resentment towards asylums seekers, Muslims as well as Sinti and Roma, increased,” the study’s authors said.

    The number of those surveyed that believed Sinti and Roma peoples tended towards criminality rose to nearly 60 per cent, while slightly more than 80 per cent of respondents wanted the state not to be too generous when examining asylum applications.
