Whole-COMM Country Reports Explore Factors That Facilitate and Hinder Positive Interactions between Locals and Migrants in 9 Countries

Whole-COMM’s researchers have explored the interactions between migrants and long-term residents, and migrants’ experiences of inclusion and exclusion in 9 countries. The reports aim to uncover the impact of policies and local contexts on experiences and social interactions.

The study is based on in-depth interviews with post-2014 migrants, focus group discussions with a mix of long-term residents and migrants, and participant observation. These reports are part of Whole-COMM Work-Package 5, which focuses on a qualitative examination of the social, governance, political, and spatial opportunities and constraints affecting successful social and economic migrant integration.

The results of the study are presented in the Country Reports on Social Relations, Individual Attitudes, and Migrant Integration Experiences. The reports focus on AustriaBelgiumGermanyItalyThe Netherlands, PolandSpainSwedenTurkey.

The reports are targeted primarily towards the scientific community and will be followed by a comparative report and a policy brief with a set of policy recommendations.

Whole-COMM is also engaging in quasi-experimental research to explore concrete policy actions that can strengthen mutual knowledge and positive interethnic relations in a selected group of localities. The research will be complemented with stakeholders’ involvement in multilevel and international policy dialogue to critically assess and discuss the Whole-COMM research results in an interactive manner.
