Migration for Welfare (WELLMIG)

Nurses within three regimes of immigration and integration into the Norwegian welfare state

Dr. Elżbieta M. Goździak is collaborating with colleagues at the Norwegian Social Research (NOVA) and the Peace Research Institute (PRIO) in Oslo, the Centre for Migration Studies at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, and the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, Poland on a study on pathways of Polish, Swedish, and Filipino nurses into the Norwegian labor market and society, examining the impact of mobility regimes on migrants’ lives. Comparing Scandinavian, EU, and non-EU migrants, we explore how and when migration, gender, race and ethnicity matter, and bring together regimes of immigration and integration in a mutually informative way. The comparison offers the opportunity to examine the impact of these regimes on migrants’ integration into work and society in Norway.This project continues ISIM’s interest in migrant health and social care workers in aging societies.

The project is funded by the Norwegian Research Council. The project's blog can be found here.
