dc.description.abstractA recent enlargement of the housing mandate and limited availability of local housing cause many municipalities in the Netherlands to be flexible and to come up with creative solutions regarding the housing of refugee status holders. In September 2015, the municipality of Nijmegen decided to house 96 young male Eritrean refugee status holders at the former student complex Griftdijk in Nijmegen. It is the first project within the Netherlands that accommodates Eritrean status holders on a large scale and a rather long-term basis. The clustered housing of Eritrean status holders generated a public discussion on their integration in Nijmegen. Many integration stakeholders assume that Eritrean status holders integrate better in dispersed housing, spread out across neighbourhoods in Nijmegen. A wide range of assumptions exists, but hard, evidence-based facts on the integration of this relatively new refugee group are lacking. As such, this research monitors and compares the integration process of clustered and dispersed Eritrean status holders in Nijmegenen_US
