Dr. Elisabeth K. Kraus

I am a researcher in social demography interested in international (forced) migration and family and fertility behaviours in different European receiving contexts. Furthermore, my current research – in the framework of the TransFAR project (“Forced Migration and Transnational Family Arrangements”) – focuses on family-related migration and integration processes of refugees.

Methodologically, I am experienced in a wide range of quantitative research methods, including longitudinal analyses such as event history analysis and sequence analysis and I am trained in quantitative survey methods.

My research has been published in journals like European Journal of Population, Advances in Life Course Research, Population, Space & Place and Journal of International Migration & Integration.

Currently, I am working as a research fellow at the Federal Institute for Population Research (BiB) in Wiesbaden, Germany. I received my PhD at the Sociodemography research group at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain, holding a scholarship from the Catalan Autonomous Government.

Previously, I worked as a research assistant at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), where I was involved in several research projects, mainly the EU-funded project MAFE (“Migrations between Africa and Europe“) or the CHANCES project (“Aspirations, expectations and life-course orientations of immigrant and non- immigrant origin youth in Spain. The role of the social context and intergenerational conflict“).
