The authors of this report will focus on a study of adaptation strategies used by migrants when joining the host country (Sweden), using the analysis of oral history interviews as the basis of their research. They will compare two waves of migration from Latvia to Sweden: (1) after the Second World War and (2) after the Restoration of Independence of Latvia in 1991.
