The project
MIMY - Empowerment through liquid integration of migrant youth in vulnerable conditions is a Research project financed by the European Commission (agreement No 870700) that will last three-years (2020-2023). The project involves 9 different countries and 13 Partner organizations in Europe.
The MIMY project wants to examine how young migrants, who originally are from non-EU countries and find themselves in vulnerable or difficult situations, deal with the integration process into the EU countries where they live.
Researchers from the University of Luxembourg work together with colleagues from 10 European Research Institutes to analyze policies to support the integration of migrants at the EU, national and local level as well as the personal strategies of young migrants. They look for elements that can help the integration process of young migrant or make it more difficult and they explore how local institutions and organizations can support them and empower them to become active members of their society. MIMY wants to directly engage and interact with young migrants putting their voices, experiences and perspective at the centre of the investigation and at the attention of local stakeholders. This is achieved by organizing interviews and group discussions with young migrants, but also by directly involving a group of young people with a migration background in research activities as peer researchers.
Our team will examine all these aspects in the context of the Grand Duchy, with a special focus on the canton of Esch sur Alzette in the South and the cantons of Diekirch and Wiltz in the North. The UL team includes researchers from the field of Geography and Psychology.
