Adaptation of newly-arrived immigrants in Estonia: Policy options and recommendations for a comprehensive and sustainable support system
The aim of the project was to carry out the analysis and data gathering for formulating policy recommendations on building migration support system in Estonia.

These studies were conducted to answer two main research questions:
- What is the most optimal and favorable immigration support services in the system and what components should it consist of?
- How immigration support services should be organized and funded for public, private and third sector?
As a result, policy recommendations were formulated for the establishment of most optimal and favourable immigration support system in Estonia.
