In the FOCUS podcast we discuss the different aspects of dynamic integration.

Episode 4 – Challenges in integration research, based on our Living Well Together Forum in January, is out now – enjoy!

The FOCUS Living Well Together Forum ‘Challenges of integration research’ took place on 26 January 2022. Between 2019 and 2021, FOCUS carried out extensive quantitative and qualitative research to explore acceptance and reality in relation to two-way dynamic integration in Jordan, Croatia, Germany and Sweden.

In this episode, FOCUS researchers discuss the challenges and methodological dilemmas of such an ambitious study.
