Integration of new immigrants in rural areas through adult education, Swedish for immigrants and university education through local municipal education centres

Research project Over the last decades, migration patterns have changed, which is well documented in research and media. Previously, migration was characterized by the fact that migration offered better living conditions or less unemployment (labour migration). Today, migration is to a greater extent characterized by escape from, for example, poverty, war, political instability or persecution because of religiosity or ethnicity. When migrants earlier had a more clear place in mind and sometimes even an employer

The purpose of the present project is therefore that in three rural municipalities describe and analyse needs for support (i) in adult education or Swedish for immigrants to begin complementary education (focus on university studies), (ii) to conduct university studies, (iii) ) to establish networks, to establish themselves in the local labour market.
