MiLifeStatus Research Day

On 2 November the MiLifeStatus team, research associates and colleagues held an inspiring research day at the Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht to discuss preliminary findings from various research projects on immigrant naturalisation. Maarten Vink presented a paper on immigrant naturalisation in Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden; Christophe Leclerc present findings on residential segregation and naturalisation propensity in the Netherlands; Swantje Falcke presented a paper on how the German citizenship law reform of 2000 affected immigrant naturalisation propensity; Anna Tegunimataka discussed ideas on how citizenship policy conditions the citizenship premium in the labour market; Marloes de Hoon presented a paper on naturalization and onward migration of refugees who obtained asylum in the Netherlands; and finally Floris Peters discussed ideas on how citizenship policy conditions the relation between immigrant naturalisation and international mobility. 

The project Migrant Life Course and Legal Status Transition (MiLifeStatus) is a research project led by Maarten Vink funded by a Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council (2016-2021).
