This project examines the effects of the European Union’s (EU) external migration management policies from the perspectives of six major countries of origin, transit and destination in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
Research confirms that unaccompanied asylum-seeking young people face obstacles and challenges in destination countries such as Finland, Norway, and the UK. Over time, despite the difficulties, some are successful in being given permission to settle in these countries.

Ordinary life emerges once again, as they develop sustaining relationships with other people, and add to the life of their new country.
This project aims to describe and understand the fundamentals of integration of youth, and its variation across five countries (Norway, Sweden, England, Germany and the Netherlands). We use the large-scale CILS4EU/CILS-NOR data on young people of immigrant and majority origins, collected by us with the purpose of giving a comprehensive understanding of integration.

The overall research task consists of individualizing and explaining cyber security when it comes to mitigating threats but also to empowering both individuals and communities in EHN to cope with new, ICT-related socio-politico-legal, cultural, economic and environmental challenges.
Current societal changes put pressure on the values and political ideals underlying the Nordic democratic educational project and its practical realisation. The centre focuses on the crucial question: How do systems, cultures and actors in education facilitate and constrain justice in the context of globalising Nordic welfare states?
