Identity, citizenship and belonging
among settled Eastern European migrant
children and young people in the UK
Welcome to the Here to Stay? Project
This is the website for Here to Stay? Identity, citizenship and belonging among settled Eastern European migrant children and young people in the UK. The project is supported by funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and is led by a team of researchers from the Universities of Strathclyde, Glasgow and Plymouth.
Eastern Europeans are the fastest growing minority groups in the UK. This study focusses on Eastern European young people who have moved to the UK since the enlargement of the European Union started in 2004. It documents their everyday lives, explores their cultural and national identities, and their sense of belonging. The research will contribute to debates on migration and Europe, providing information for policy makers and practitioners.
If you are a young person from a Central Eastern European background, please consider taking our survey available at: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/heretostayproject
Please get in touch if you are a service provider, policy maker, researcher, journalist or just interested in the research. We would like to open up the debate about this contemporary and pressing issue. We hope you can join us.Click here to join our mailing list or share us on social media
