Partnership formation in the context of refugee migration
Between 2015 and 2016, Germany received large numbers of young unmarried male refugees, who arrived from culturally distant countries and settled in areas with largely non-existent co-ethnic communities. With the situation likely to complicate the process of refugees forming relationships, the EU-funded PARFORM project aims to conduct research that will provide illuminating answers. To that end, it will collect novel three-wave panel data on male refugee migrants from Syria and Afghanistan and administer specially-tailored instruments to established representative panel studies (e.g. CILS4EU-DE) to collect data on the German population. The project's findings will have significant policy implications for the social integration of refugees in Germany and Europe as a whole.
