2014–2015 Linking Northern Communities. East European Immigration into Scotland
This programme, funded by the Scottish Universties Insight Institute at the University of Strathclyde, was led by Professor Karin Friedrich (Aberdeen) and Professor Ulrich Kockel (Heriot Watt). It focused on the importance of understanding the social, cultural and economic parameters of integration of migrants into Scottish society, and how awareness of common links of heritage and its influence on identity can improve and ease the integration of migrants into their new environment.
