Immigrant's integration in several EU and non-EU countries: a time-use approach

Description: My research aims to study the integration of immigrants for a wide range of EU and non-EU countries, by applying a new approach based on the time immigrants and natives allocate to daily activities. This will be achieved by: 1) investigating the differences between immigrants and natives in participation and in the time spent in integrating activities using parametric methods. In particular, the analysis focuses on differences between sub-groups of immigrants based on gender and other characteristics; 2) developing new metrics that analyse the relationships between integrating activities and how individuals distribute the time across activities. The analysis of the relationships between activities allows us to better understand deviations from desirable behaviour and inform policy actions aimed at removing constraints.
