SYREALITY: Syrian imaginations of Europe meet reality


Taking on a longitudinal perspective, the project SYREALITY: Syrian imaginations of Europe meet reality focuses on Syrians who have settled in four cities across European countries since the outbreak of the conflict in Syria in 2011. It investigates the question (i) how broader life aspirations influence migration decision-making in a context of forced displacement; (ii) which influence war and displacement have on social class and life aspirations; (iii) how forced migrants’ legal status and the context of reception in four different European cities impact life aspirations.
