REsilience and SOlidarity in intercultural encounters between displaced migrants and host society members: An ego-centered NETwork approach (RESONET)

Unité : Centre de Recherche en psychologie sociale et interculturelle | ULB103

Description :

The RESONET project is a collaborative research project funded by the European network WEAVE « Research Funding Without Borders
» (SNF, FNRS, FWO) led by:

Prof. Eva G.T. Green, Université de Lausanne
Prof. Karen Phalet and Dr. Emanuele Politi, KU Leuven
Prof. Laurent Licata and Prof. Antoine Roblain Université Libre de Bruxelles

Because a growing number of people are seeking international protection, it is urgent to examine how their adjustment to the
receiving countries can be facilitated. Migration trajectories of asylum seekers and refugees (i.e., displaced migrants) are often
marked by broken relationships, loss of social support, and cumulated social exclusions. At the cross-roads of social, cultural and
political psychology, this project employs an ego-centric social network approach and examines proximal social environments as
spaces enabling resilience of displaced migrants, while concurrently sustaining host society members' engagement in solidarity-based
actions in support of displaced migrants. By combining unique data collected within this project with existing data, three
research teams in Belgium and Switzerland examine how intercultural ties between displaced migrants and host society members are created
and sustained.
