Not without my family

The purpose of the research project is to expand the current knowledge on how family specific characteristics interact with refugee-related policies and affect subsequent integration of refugee children and adults.

The project will be a retrospective, register based empirical study. It will mainly be based on data from the Danish Immigration Service which is merged with data from Statistics Denmark. The output will consist of a number of quantitative and empirically based papers.

PhD student Camilla Hvidtfeldt will be conducting the project under the supervision of Associate Professor Marie Louise Nørredam. The project is collaboration between The Rockwool Foundation and The Danish Research Center for Migration, Ethnicity and Health at University of Copenhagen. The project runs from August 2017 until July 2020.
