Everyday peace and Migrant Integration in the Finnish society

Meeri Tiensuu

This research re-imagines the processes of migrant integration in Finland by looking into the connections between migration, belonging, governing and politics. It investigates Finland’s integration policies, their ramifications, and their limitations in the lived experiences of navigating difference among people with migrant background. To do so, it brings peace research together with anthropological examinations of people’s struggle for placemaking, belonging and co-existence. Empirically, the research builds on ethnographic fieldwork in Tampere.   

The PhD project is affiliated with the Homeward project.
