09.07.2018

Jörg Welker attended the 15th annual IMISCOE conference (International Migration, Integration, and Social Cohesion), which took place from July 2-4, 2018, in Barcelona, with a contribution from the study “Refugees in the German Educational System” (ReGES).

As part of a panel on the topic of “Refugees and Forced Displacements: Responding to the Refugee Crisis”, Welker presented his research project analyzing the effects of refugees’ residency status in Germany on their motivation for integration. Besides presenting his project, Welker also gave information about the ReGES study and its survey design. Using provisional data of the first survey wave of ReGES, he also showed some first descriptive results.

IMISCOE is Europe’s biggest research network in the fields of migration and integration. It brings together about 700 researchers who were able to sway ideas in more than 130 sessions during this year’s conference.
