Summary

This report describes a study into the role of social media in migration decision-making by Syrian asylum migrants in the Netherlands. This study is based on personal interviews with 54 Syrian immigrants who received a residence status in the Netherlands. The majority of them arrived in the Netherlands in 2015, before the refugee agreements of the EU with Turkey. Based on a semi-structured interview guideline we inquired about their social media use in advance of, during and after their journey to the Netherlands.
