Young refugees in Nordic countries – health, education and employment in an equity perspective
2 dec 2020
Unique register data across the Nordic countries will be presented at our online conference about how health, education and employment jointly play a role in the process of integration of young refugees in the Nordics.
Integration of immigrants is of great national and international interest, but challenges continue to persist. The Nordic countries are sharing quite similar general welfare schemes and other cultural and historical roots, but at the same time displaying different integration policies; thus, being an interesting and inspiring setting for cross-country comparisons to disentangle some of the complex processes forming the health and welfare trajectories of young refugees.
Thursday 3 December at 13.00 – 16.00 (CET) we will host the online conference Young refugees in Nordic countries – health, education and employment in an equity perspective.
This conference sheds light on patterns and trends regarding education, employment and health among young refugees across the Nordic countries based on the unique Nordic registry data along with comparative analyses of health reception, educational and labour market policies. Results from qualitative studies on policies and practices related to young refugees will provide further insights into the challenges and experiences of the main actors involved.
