WP6 — The role of social security systems in ensuring the health and psychological well-being of migrants in Europe
Home page >> Projects >> Well-being, integration and liquid migration >> WP6 — The role of social security systems in ensuring the health and psychological well-being of migrants in Europe

As part of this WP the association of return- and transnational migration and social inclusion from the scope of the determinants of health, e.g. participation in society, economic well-being, and accessibility to healthcare, will be studied, applying the gender perspective.

This WP is expected to generate knowledge on behaviour, health and psychological well-being regarding the use of social insurance related to healthcare. The initial step of the project will be a profound study of the EU directives, and how the legislation ensures rights and available health services for different groups of migrants.

The data analysis method will consist of explorative, quantitative multivariate regression techniques as well as qualitative studies. Other data collection will also take place, including research on health-related aspects. The triangulation method plans to include in-depth interviews and focus group discussions with return and transnational migrants to Latvia and other European countries, as well as administrative data. Thus, the study is going to, by using objective measurements and individual experiences, analyse perceived social insurance support (as it refers to health) and its impact on health and well-being among migrants.

A direct relationship between wellbeing and the determinants of health will be drawn, and the project is going to be conducted with a gender perspective. The project has an ambition to develop new methodologies in healthcare policy and public health research in relation to transnational migration.
