Abstract

Integration Up North research is part of a wider project led by Migration Yorkshire (the regional migration partnership for Yorkshire and the Humber region), which aims to gain a better understanding of Third Country Nationals' (TCN) integration experiences in the region. The whole project aims to improve the integration of TCNs through a comprehensive and co-ordinated programme of research, training, guidance, strategic support and migrant participation for Local Authorities, key policy-makers and practitioners. As part of the Integration Up North project funded by the European Integration Fund (EIF), the University of Salford undertook a research project to explore the settlement experiences of Third Country Nationals who were living and working in the North of England. The following issues were explored: the settlement and integration experiences of Third Country Nationals and how they differ according to gender, route in, and vulnerability; how and in what ways particular actors - such as services, employers and communities - assist in the process of integration; the nature and context of social relations between new migrants and local community members; and what local authorities and other services can do to enhance positive experiences of settlement and integration in the future. This involved qualitative longitudinal in-depth interviews and photo elicitation with three different groups of individuals: highly skilled migrants; family joiners; and former asylum seekers. This summary report includes the main research findings and recommendations.
