HILF: How did I claim my place? Young immigrant women's successful path into Swedish society
The research project focuses on what has helped the integration of young immigrant women into working life, education and civil society. Immigrants risk to a greater extent being excluded from the labour market, higher education and organisations in society. A group that is particularly at risk of being discriminated against is young women. But what are the keys or turning points that make young immigrant women actually succeed? That is the focus of this project. By identifying turning points, the conditions can also increase to make more young immigrant women able to enter these three social arenas.
