After completing a bachelor in Cultural Anthropology (VU University) and the research master Migration, Ethnic Relations and Multiculturalism (University of Utrecht), Roxy started her PhD research in 2018. Her project is about the early integration processes among recently arrived refugees in the Netherlands (with a residence permit) and focusses mainly on Syrian permit holders as they form the largest group of recent arrivals.
My PhD is part of the her research is part of the ‘longitudinal cohort study asylum seekers and permit holders’, a collaboration between four research institutes: SCP, WODC, RIVM and CBS. In this PhD project I combine quantitative and qualitative methods. The aim is to map the process of the (socio-economic and socio-cultural) integration permit starting from an early stage, monitor changes in those positions over time and examine relationships between the different dimensions of refugee integration.
