Title Resettled and Connected? : Social Networks in the Integration Process of Resettled Refugees
Date 2015
Editor(s) Suter, Brigitte; Magnusson, Karin
English abstract
Resettlement constitutes a durable solution to international refugee protection. However, for it to be sustainable, the integration process of the post-resettlement phase is crucial. This volume, which is the outcome of the project “Before and After – New Perspectives on Resettled Refugees’ Integration Process”, sheds light on the integration process from a broader perspective. After briefly addressing the labour-market integration of resettled refugee groups in Sweden, the volume’s main and longest chapter addresses the role of social networks in the integration process of resettled refugees. Social networks are analysed in relation to time and space, and hence attention is paid both to the time before – spent in refugee camps – and to the patterns of mobility pre- and post-resettlement. The following two chapters move away from Sweden and focus on the situation in Australia – with an investigation into the role of ethnic social networks – and Japan, with a focus on the recent development of the country’s resettlement programme. The final chapter brings the focus back to Sweden and enriches the volume by looking at one particular aspect of the resettlement process – the Cultural Orientation Programme – from a postcolonial perspective.
