KathleenValtonen: The Societal Participation of Refugees and Immigrants: Case Studies in Finland, Canada and Trinidad. Migration Studies C 12. Vammala 1997, 244 p.
The research focuses upon the integration of refugee and immigrant groups in the resettlement countries of Finland, Canada and Trinidad. The investigation centres on societal participation within a qualitative multiple-case research design that captures some of the wider backdrop of migration and displacement. The three research sites represent very different types of settlement environments, so that any patterns discovered in the integration process would be founded on strong convergent data and be more valid than if the study was conducted in a single location.
