Does asylum waiting time affect labor market integration and health?

What is the aim of the research project?

This project studies whether asylum case processing time affects labor market integration and health. Recent research from different countries points to negative effects on early outcomes from long waits. In association with the 2015 increase in asylum seekers, processing times increased substantially in Sweden, which makes the topic highly policy relevant here too.
