Migrants and incorporation processes

The field of migration studies is very focused on understanding how people who move across borders start-up their new lives.

What resources can they draw on in this process, what opportunities and constraints do they encounter?

My research redefines how we describe and conceptualise these processes, looking in particular at social class resources. I base my ideas on a range of theoretical influences, including Bourdieu.
