Migration and integration are currently highly contentious topics in political, public, and scientific arenas. Their study is instrumental in tackling common migration-related prejudices and inefficiencies in migrant integration, providing a better knowledge-base for decision-makers, and promoting a more informed population at large. In 2016, the authors of this article, in collaboration with Tuomas Martikainen, were commissioned by NordForsk to map the current Nordic integration and migration research landscape, and suggest measures that can improve the policy relevance of research.
