Thesis Abstract / Summary:

This study examines the factors leading or hindering integration of refugees in Malta. The notion of integration is very complex to define and to put into practice. It is also important to note that integration is not a forced act therefore, an individual must have a conscious will in order to pass through the process of integration.

Throughout the years refugees have been considered as misplaced and homeless, deprived from policies concerning them, especially strategies for integration. This situation caused considerable difficulty in the process of their settlement, particularly during its early stages. However, it is suggested that the nature of these encounters contributed to strengthen the adaptability of the interviewed refugees.

Therefore, the aim of this study is to uncover tha major factors that lead refugees to structural and cognitive integration. It is also important to uncover feelings, challenges and experiences of their everyday life.
