Earlier and finished research Project

  • A study on the reception of Unaccompanied minors in the Gothenburg region in Sweden.
    From the 1st of July 2011 until the 31th of December 2012 I worked half time as a researcher in a research and development project on the reception of unaccompanied minors in the Gothenburg region in Sweden. The project was financed by the European Refugee fund. The project owner was a research unit called FoU i Väst(Research and development in West) Göteborgsregionens kommunalförbund placed in Gothenburg. The final report was published in Swedish in 2013.
  • IPS – Immigrants, Police and Social Work.
    I was working as a researcher in a research- and development project financed by the European Integration Fund during the period 2010-07-01 - 2011-04-31. Five European countries participated in the project. The projectpartner in Sweden was the Department of Sociology in Gothenburg with the project leader Jan Carle. The aim was to contribute to the effective education of European police officers and social workers and promoting education within a multicultural context where these examples of the good and most promising practices can be used as case studies.
  • PhD thesis ”Within Transnational and Local Social Worlds – Social support exchange and strategies for earning a living among Swedish-Somalis”.
    The aim of my study was to describe and analyse the exchange of social support within the social network of Swedish-Somalis within and outside of Sweden. The aim was also to describe and analyse their strategies to earn a living within and outside of Sweden.
