Following previous survey waves in the projects FIMAS, FIMAS+INTEGRATION, FIMAS+INTEGRATION2 and FIMAS+YOUTH, the project FIMAS+Women constitutes the fifth wave of the FIMAS longitudinal study on integration trajectories of refugees in Austria. The aim of the FIMAS project series is to follow and study integration processes of refugees and beneficiaries of subsidiary protection. The particular focus of the project FIMAS+Women is to examine the situation of refugee women with regard to their chances of labour market integration. The survey sample will include 2,300 recognized refugees and beneficiaries of subsidiary protection of working age from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran, of whom about half will be female.
