FOCUS: A research project on integration

How to live well together

FOCUS in a nutshell

FOCUS is an EU funded research project running from January 2019 to June 2022, led by the IFRC Reference Centre for Psychosocial Support hosted by the Danish Red Cross with partners from nine countries (Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Denmark France, Germany, Ireland, Jordan and the United Kingdom).

It aims to make an impact on both research and practice by understanding and improving the dynamics of integration in Jordan, Croatia, Germany and Sweden. A special emphasis is put on identifying and capitalising on the psychological and social factors that support integration and really help us to live well together.

Therefore, FOCUS

  • Maps integration policies and practices and carry out major field studies at four research sites;
  • Identifies and pilots innovative practices for social and labour market integration and pilot-tests;
  • Engages with policy makers to provide guidance on policy development and programme design.
