REETTA RIIKONEN

Project Researcher

I work as a doctoral researcher in the MAMANET project at the University of Eastern Finland. I study intergroup contacts between mothers of young children with Finnish and immigrant backgrounds in Helsinki neighbourhoods. My dissertation aims to study how mothers understand the roles and responsibilities of contact participants in intergroup encounters between Finnish and immigrant mothers and to examine the factors through which positive encounters can be promoted. I am doing my dissertation in the doctoral program in Social and Cultural Encounters (SCE).
