Basic information
Original title:
Social constructions of migrant statuses and their impact on the processes of selection and integration of migrants
1 September 2009–30 April 2012

Most research on migration and documents on migration policy use simplified categories of migration and don’t sufficiently take into account the socio-political processes of defining migration as a socially relevant issue and the processes of migration policy formation. The main research question is how policies of reception and selection of migrants are determined by gender, ethnicity, social class and legal status of migrants in a country.
