Workshop 60 min

Young Migrant Men’s Well-Being, a qualitative study

Wednesday, 29.03.2017 • 17:30 h • CJD Nord

The event will present the findings of the EU project “Young Migrant Men’s Well-Being in Diversity" (MiMen) and is aimed at people with an interest in academic studies and European perspectives concerning young migrant men, and practitioners interested in input from a research perspective and in debating its practical implications.
Under the MiMen project, 282 young migrant men (YMM) aged 16-27 in seven European countries were interviewed about their situations. Emphasis was given to their subjective perception of well-being in various areas (such as education/work, emotional ties, social networks, discrimination, etc.). Special attention was given to the gender-specific challenges faced by and the expectations imposed on the YMM. It should be pointed out that although some YMM had immigrated as refugees, the project did not examine the situation of current refugees nor the well-being specifically of refugees.
MiMen was co-financed by the European Commission through the European Integration Fund and ran from 1 January 2014 to 31 August 2015. Its partner organisations were universities, NGOs and ministries in Finland, France, Italy, Ireland, the UK and Germany. MiMen was coordinated by CJD Hamburg-Eutin.
