Integration research backed

The Swedish government has awarded about 70 million kronor (€6.8m) through a programme for research into migration and integration.

Nearly half of the money went to Uppsala University, where two projects will be based. One team, led by Birgitta Essén, will look at gender dynamics and reproductive health among those who have migrated, while another project led by Olof Åslund will study the impact of migration and ethnicity on national economies.

The other two projects that won money are based at the University of Gothenburg and Linköping University. At Gothenburg, Andrea Spehar will research integration governance in cities in Jordan, Turkey and Sweden, while Linköping’s Marc Keuschnigg will analyse the debate around immigration.
