Report I went to a conference in Washington, D.C. to present findings of an intervention study for refugee children. Here, I had fruitful discussions which allowed me to precise my research question. Second part of my package was a two-month research stay in Glasgow. I analyzed data of a survey on refugees and prepared a joint-publication. With the feedback of my supervisor I managed to conclude the data analysis and prepared a draft of the paper, which will be submitted this year. The research stay allowed me to incorporate new statistical methods. Moreover, my supervisor helped me to see important policy-related implications of our data due to his experience in political consulting.
