Die Rolle von Integrationsprogrammen bei der Integration von Geflüchteten


Einladung zum Vortrag von Dr. Meta van der Linden (Erasmus University Rotterdam, Niederlande) im Rahmen des Fakultätskolloquiums

Frau Dr. Meta van der Linden ist zu Gast im Lehrgebiet Community Psychology und wird im Rahmen des Fakultätskolloquiums einen Vortrag zum Thema "A longitudinal study of the role of integration programs for the integration process of refugees" halten.

Abstract des Vortrags:

Since the 2015 refugee crisis, the nature of migration has drastically changed from predominantly family and labor migration to refugee flows from countries suffering unrest. Refugees now form a large but distinct immigrant group in Europe. As the situation is still emerging, the literature on refugee integration in response to the most recent refugee flows, is still relatively sparse. The EUR Bridge research project breaks new ground by undertaking a comprehensive, longitudinal study of refugees’ structural and socio-cultural integration process and how this process is shaped by local integration policy. The project is situated in Rotterdam (the second largest city in the Netherlands) in which refugees with residence permits are placed in one of two largely parallel integration programs shaped by the municipality or a privately-funded organization. The refugees from largely Syrian and Eritrean descent are then followed from the moment they are placed in Rotterdam up to three to four years later. During this talk, the following central themes are discussed. First, findings are presented of the first wave of the panel survey (N = 1239, response rate 84%) which shed light on refugees’ early steps into their socio-cultural and structural integration process within two years after their arrival. Second, we recognize that integration is a bidirectional process which also requires adaptation by the host society. Therefore, the social context is incorporated by examining potential effects of the broad range of neighborhoods in Rotterdam in which refugees are placed. Last, preliminary insights with regard to refugees’ experiences with integration policy are discussed.
