Project 'Do migrants in Europe age well? A mixed methods and intervention study in four countries (MIG-AGE)’ rewarded
Basak Bilecen, Associate Professor at University of Groningen, received a Volkswagen Foundation Grant (1.2 million Euros) for her project titled ‘Do migrants in Europe age well? A mixed methods and intervention study in four countries (MIG-AGE)’.
The project examines what it means for different migrant groups in Europe to age well, specifically for first-generation retired labor migrants from Italy and Turkey living in Germany and the Netherlands and for retirement migrants from Germany and the Netherlands living in Italy and Turkey. Based on a highly innovative mixed methods design, we integrate quantitative (WP1) and qualitative methods (WP2), develop an intervention (WP3), and use visual sociology for dissemination (WP4). This project is a cooperation with RUG, University of Mannheim (Germany), University of Genoa (Italy) and Koc University (Turkey).
