A Better Life for the Children of Exile: Intergenerational Adaptation of the Descendants of Refugees

Project description

Understanding the lives of children and grandchildren of refugees

More than 2.5 million refugees have been granted residence in Europe over the last ten years. A lot is known about the inequalities that are experienced by immigrants who arrive as refugees, but much less is known about their children’s lives. Aiming to fill this gap in research, the EU-funded project REFU-GEN will establish a new framework for intergenerational adaptation by comparing four domains of life for the descendants of refugees: (1) their education, income and employment, (2) their family formation, (3) where and how they live, and (4) their health. Using cutting-edge research methods to analyse longitudinal data for the whole population of Sweden, REFU-GEN represents the first comprehensive intergenerational study of refugees, their children and their grandchildren.
