Interuniversity Center for Social Science Theory and Methodology

NWO Open Competition (Social Sciences and Humanities program) grant for Matthijs Kalmijn (UvA)

The grant will be used to conduct the project 'A Place to Grow Old? The Risks and Rewards of Retirement Migration'

About the project: Emigrating in later life is a step that more and more people consider. A different climate and culture make this step attractive as well as risky. In this project we examine how Dutch natives settle down in Southern European countries, how they integrate and try to achieve the good life.
