Report on institutional and contextual factors

Once in the destination country, migrants face the challenge of adapting to a new socio-economic, political and cultural context. Interacting with the institutions of the new society, searching for jobs in a tough labour market or trying to develop their occupational career, maintaining old and creating new social ties, reshaping feelings of belonging are all demanding aspects of the migration experience, even in conditions of freedom of mobility in the EU labour market. Mobile individuals apply diverse strategies to achieve their personal goals drawing upon formal and informal channels of support, influenced by the policies of the host countries to manage the mobility of European citizens and achieve competitiveness and growth.

In this report we present results from the comparative analysis of the qualitative interviews with migrants conducted within the framework of WP4 ‘The lived experiences of migration’ of the Growth, Equal Opportunities, Migration and Markets (GEMM) Project.
