IMPACIM: The Impact of Restrictions and Entitlements on the Integration of Family Migrants. A Comparative Report COMPAS Communications


This report presents findings from the IMPACIM project, a comparative study aimed at exploring the impact of admission criteria that impose restrictive conditions of stay (in particular those relating to jobs, services, benefits and voting), on the economic, social, cultural and political integration of third country national family migrants, moving to European Member States. Coordinated at the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society at the University of Oxford, the project involved four research teams providing evidence of the current state of restrictions and/or access to various benefits and public services in Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK. The research aimed to explore evidence, both in existing quantitative data and through generating original qualitative data, to understand family migrants’ integration and specifically the impacts of restrictive conditions of stay on their integration.
