Migrant Life Course and Legal Status Transition (MiLifeStatus)

Start date: Aug 1, 2016, End date: Jul 31, 2021,

When does citizenship provide a boost to migrant integration? A fast-track to citizenship can maximise the potential for settlement success, though too short a pathway can disincentivise integration. Not all migrants have an equal interest in naturalising and some are discouraged by restrictive policies. Yet little is known about why, how and for whom legal status transition matters and, especiall ...
