PhD student for the research project LUUI at the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen

Københavns Universitet (KU)



The Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, is seeking applications for a position as PhD. The position is part of the research project "Law and Private Governance for a New Understanding of Immigrant Integration", funded by the Carlsberg Foundation and running from 2020-2023. The position is available from 1 September 2020, for a duration of 3 years.

About the LUII project
Immigrant integration remains a challenge for most European countries. Governments struggle with issues ranging from resource allocation to cultural adaptation of migrants, especially refugees. Denmark has an extensive regulatory framework for immigrant integration. Nevertheless, statistics show that even after many years of residence, refugees have a hard time maintaining a stable place on the Danish labour market. Moreover, refugees and immigrants in general have trouble accessing permanent housing, and they have more health problems than other sections of the population. Legislation can help in facilitating immigrant integration in multiple ways, including by boosting the role played by non-state actors in integration processes. The LUUI project will compare Danish, European and international legal standards on integration in order to identify the part of the legislation that may act as a barrier to refugees and migrants' opportunities for access to the labour market, housing, and healthcare services in Denmark. The research project will look particularly at the importance of the contribution of private actors to integration work.

The PhD project is expected to complement the project’s overall legal analysis with surveys and data collection of migrants’ access to key elements that sustain immigrant integration in Denmark. The successful applicant will be familiar with empirical studies concerning migrants and expected to conduct qualitative in-depth interviews of immigrants’ experiences with barriers and challenges as regards access to employment, health, and housing services.

The PhD employed as part of the LUII project will form a part of a larger research team, which includes senior researchers from the Center for Private Governance (CEPRI), as well as one postdoc specifically dedicated to the project.
