Short description of the project
Because a growing number of people are seeking international protection, it is urgent to examine how their adjustment to the receiving countries can be facilitated. Migration trajectories of asylum seekers and refugees (i.e., displaced migrants) are often marked by broken relationships, loss of social support, and cumulated social exclusions. At the cross-roads of social, cultural and political psychology, this project employs an ego-centric social network approach and examines proximal social environments as spaces enabling resilience of displaced migrants, while concurrently sustaining host society members' engagement in solidarity-based actions in support of displaced migrants. By combining unique data collected within this project with existing data, the research team examines how intercultural ties between displaced migrants and host society members are created and sustained.
