Migrant Christianity - Migration, religion and work in comparative perspective. Evangelical ‘ethnic churches’ in Southern Europe.

This is the final research report of the project Migrant Christianity, funded by a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship of the European Commission, European University Institute, Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies/Global Governance Programme, project n. 652925 (2015-2018). 

The project focused on Latin American and African migrants  members of mainline Protestant churches in Italy and Spain. It explored:

·   - how Evangelical migrants make use of religion to negotiate social and economic integration and how ethnicity/class/gender/age shape their strategies and religious experience;

·      - how Evangelical 'ethnic churches' act as brokers of migrants’ integration, more specifically in relation to employment and to achieving a positive identity under conditions of hardship.
