Research on migration in the Nordic countries should be broadened to include more mixed-method studies, a policy paper has found.
The paper, commissioned by the Nordic funder Nordforsk, discovered a concern among migration researchers that funders are not properly meriting or encouraging experimental projects based on collaboration between more than one Nordic country.
The report aims to map out out migration trends and to review Nordic migration research. Researchers have generally welcomed increased funding for migration research—especially since the migration crisis. But the report found that the mostly discipline-based calls have fragmented the field into more narrow areas.
