Research agenda for the Swedish national research programme within migration and integration

Strengthening research to meet societal challenges

The Swedish Research Council has been tasked by the Government to establish a national research programme on migration and integration. The purpose is to create good prerequisites for research to contribute to meeting major societal challenges.

This strategic research agenda seeks to examine and analyse how the national research programme should best be designed. It deals with questions such as:

– What societal challenges and knowledge gaps relating to migrationand integration exist today and may arise in the future?
– What other initiatives and stakeholders are active in this research field?
– How should research support and activities best be designed to meet the aims of the programme?

The research agenda will be continually updated during the course of the programme.
