Project descriptionThe primary objective is to study the roles of integration policy, exposure to ethnic diversity, and the persistence of immigrant ancestry culture in the formation of social and economic structures in Norway. These are all essential elements of sustaining the welfare and working life model of a diversified society in an era of increasing immigration and ethnic diversity. The project outlines an ambitious research agenda where we aim to (i) evaluate the effectiveness of integration policies, such as the introduction program, education for adult immigrants, early labor market entry of refugees, and subsistence requirements for family reunification (ii) investigate the effects of exposure to ethnic diversity on trust and political participation, combining analyses of field experiments and administrative register data, and (iii) examine the role of ancestry culture in integration across generations, with particular focus on the transmission of gender norms, drawing on analyses of data from laboratory experiments, surveys, and register data. This multidisciplinary project has ambitions of providing policy relevant estimates of causal effects, combining state-of-the art econometric methods and analyses of data from large administrative registers, field and laboratory experiments, and surveys.
