Transitions Upon Resettlement in Norway - TURIN

Oslo, Norway
Educational and psychosocial transitions encountered by young refugees upon resettlement in Norway (TURIN) - Based on classroom observations and interviews with students and staff conducted during fieldwork in five upper secondary schools in Norway, the TURIN study aims to explore the role of schools in supporting newly-resettled refugee young people. 
Resettlement involves several educational and psychosocial transitions for young refugees. Some fundamental psychosocial transitions that are crucial for successful resettlement and integration are related to the processes of socialisation, integration and rehabilitation.


The data collection includes fieldwork as well as interviews with young refugees and significant adults, such as school staff, caregivers and professionals involved in health and care provisions. Furthermore, there will be conducted case studies of local policies and practices regarding the resettlement of young refugees, as well as studies of key national policy documents. The TURIN study is part of a Nordic research project «Coming of Age in Exile (CAGE) – Health and Socio-Economic inequities in Young Refugees in the Nordic Welfare Societies», which is funded by NordForsk, the Nordic Research Council. CAGE is a four-year project (2015-2019) carried out by leading research groups in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
