ReROOT | Arrival Infrastructures as Sites of Integration for Recent Newcomers
ReROOT is a Horizon2020 research project consisting of six universities, two research institutes, and two NGOS running from 2021-2025. The project uses ethnographic methods to study the challenges and opportunities migrants encounter on arrival in specific arrival situations in eight countries (Belgium, Turkey, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Hungary, Greece, UK). ReROOT focuses on ‘arrival infrastructure’ - sources of shelter, support and resources that migrants utilize on arrival in a place. From informal social connections to formal support organisations; from public spaces to libraries, shops or health centres, ‘arrival infrastructure’ shapes migrants’ pathways after arrival and affects how quickly and successfully they can achieve their goals, whether to settle or move on.
PHASE 1: exploring & experimenting

In nine pilot sites we explore:

1) What are arrival infrastructures and how do they work?

2) Which concepts and methodologies are useful for the exploration of arrival infrastructure?

3) How can relevant actors be brought together to intervene in arrival-related challenges?

  • Training 1: Concepts and methods for arrival infrastructure site research
  • Training 2: Analysis of regimes of integration, diversity and mobility
  • Training 3: Action Research in arrival infrastructure
  • Fieldwork takes place (2021-2022).
PHASE 2: desiging, testing, training, and sharing

1) Designing methods for intervention in arrival contexts based on phase 1 research

2) Workshopping and refining these methods with field actors to develop a toolkit

3) Sharing toolkit with relevant actors (civil society organisations,

social professionals, policy makers)
