Assessing Migrants’ Emotion States Post-Settlement

Nature and Context

Large-scale survey research by social scientists offers general understandings of migrants' challenges and provides assessments of post-migration benchmarks like employment, obtention of educational credentials, and home ownership. Minimal research, however, probes the realm of emotions or 'feeling states' in migration and settlement processes, and it is often approached through closed-ended survey questions that superficially assess feeling states.
