The social mobility of refugee children

Dnr: 151/2018

Sweden saw an unprecedented wave of migration following the wars in former Yugoslavia in the early 1990s. This project follows the children of this refugee group, for up to 25 years. We study educational and labour market outcomes, as well as different aspects of social integration, including patters of family formation and workplace and residential segregation. The outcomes are compared to those of same-aged natives. We also document gender and age-at-migration differences.
