    This Project is part of the following research programme/s:

    Migration and Mobility

    Overview

    This project is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

    Are the differences we see between immigrants and natives in employment, housing and family patterns short-term outcomes in a long-term process of cultural and economic integration? Or are they reflections of different pathways and outcomes for immigrants and their descendants?

    This project investigates the lives of immigrants and their descendants in the UK, France, Germany and Sweden to explore how employment, housing and family trajectories evolve and interact, and how societal context, early life and critical transitions shape life histories. Using innovative computer simulation techniques, the study will project future life trajectories among immigrant groups.
