I am the inventor of Pairity - an evidence-based, community-driven platform for refugee integration. 


Our goal is to mobilize the best aspects of community sponsorship models, inform scholarly research, and offer evidence for policymakers. Our first pilot is Samen Hier with Justice & Peace Netherlands. We hope to scale Pairity around Europe and generate a comparative, longitudinal dataset on the effects of social networks on integration.

Our project was covered by the lovely podcast People Fixing the World on BBC World Service. 

To learn more about Pairity's whys and hows please see our piece in The Conversation 

The Samen Hier Mid-Term Evaluation describes some of the project's early results.
