The MICA research team at the Faculty of Social Sciences, along with a broader research group of affiliated researchers, focuses on investigating the various aspects of aging in the context of migration. Our research projects encompass topics related to elderly care, migrant mental health, and identity. We aim to advance aging research by analyzing the impact of migration on later life, examining policies influencing aging and care experiences, and studying care workforce management. Our research provides insight into life transitions, social inequalities, agency in later life, and challenges in the care sector.
MICA is one of four research groups constituting the Centre of Excellence in Research on Ageing and Care (CoE AgeCare). MICA's research programme, focused on migration themes, aligns harmoniously with the overarching objectives of the centre, enabling us to provide valuable insights that contribute to its comprehensive research programme.
