ApartTogether is a study coordinated by Ghent University and a research consortium of academics linked to other European universities to better understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on migrants and refugees.
The study aims to better understand how refugees and migrants experience the psychosocial impact of COVID-19 and how they deal with challenges that have arisen. Insights from the survey will be used to inform organisations and decision-makers on how they can better support migrants and refugees during and after this pandemic.
The online survey contains 30 items to allow for a speedy completion by participants, who can fill out the questionnaires using their phones, other handheld devices or laptops. It uses easy to understand language and has been translated into 27 languages.
