Supporting information practices of refugees in transition and resettlement – (SpIRiT) project
The first phase of the study has focused on interviewing refugees about their information experiences during transition and resettlement processes. The team has employed a number of techniques including a photo voice technique which allows participants the opportunity to actively participate in the project.
In the second phase of the study program researchers will investigate how public libraries in Sweden are supporting the information needs of refugees and their families.
To complement this project the research team has also undertaken a bibliometric survey of the research landscape of refugee studies to identify potential issues and areas for future studies.
