The purpose of this research project is to analyse career pathways that lead to successful labour market participation of immigrants in Sweden, focusing on the role of individual and locational characteristics.

The main research questions to be addressed in the project are i) what common career pathways can be observed among immigrants, ii) which individual career steps lead to successful labour market participation, and iii) which individual and locational (neighbourhood and local labour market) characteristics increase the chances of entering a career pathway that lead to successful labour market outcomes. Based on the proposed analysis, we aim to provide evidence-based policy advice that enhances the labour market integration of immigrants.
