The concept of embeddedness has been used in migration studies to explain the degree of migrants’ adjustment and the “depth of roots” that migrants grow in the receiving countries and societies. However, embeddedness has been described as a vague and "fuzzy" concept, lacking in precision and clarity. In her lecture, Professor Louise Ryan, from University of Sheffield and a Visiting Professor at SWPS University will talk about Differentiated embedding as a framework for understanding migrants reaction to Brexit.

The lecture, organized by SWPS University's Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program is a part of the series The Challenges of the Humanities of the 21st Century.

The lecture will be delivered in English. Free admission.

Differentiated embedding as a framework for understanding migrants reaction to Brexit

In the lecture Profesor Ryan draws on her concept of differentiated embedding (see Ryan, JEMS, 2017) to analyze longitudinal data collected with participants before and after the Brexit referendum. She proposes the concept of ‘differentiated embedding’ to explore how migrants negotiate attachment and belonging as dynamic temporal, spatial and relational processes. Embeddedness has been widely used across a range of disciplines to explain migration: ‘features of social embeddedness are among the most influential factors for migrant settlement, onward movement and return’ (Korinek et al, 2005: 794). However, embeddedness has been described as a vague and ‘fuzzy’ concept, lacking in precision and clarity (Hess, 2004). There have been calls for a clearer understanding of the qualities of embeddedness and the multidimensional nature of ties, as well as more research on the dynamism of this process over time (Hite, 2003; 2005). Rather than a static notion of embeddedness, we can suggest the more active notion of embedding (Ryan and Mulholland, 2015).
