The socio-psychological factors influencing integration: what does the literature say?

The FOCUS project is undertaking detailed survey and focus group work with both refugees and members of receiving communities. This work will add to the understanding of factors influencing integration with a particular emphasis on groups impacted by forced migration in recent years.

An early step in this work has been the undertaking of a systematic review of existing literature concerning the socio-psychological factors influencing the integration of refugees and members of the receiving communities. This review identifies factors and indicators which existing research has suggested as relevant and examines the most important concepts which are to be researched further by FOCUS.

This Brief presents a short outline of the work and a link to an edited summary of the full report.
