My name is Ville-Samuli Haverinen and I live in Joensuu where I work as a Project Researcher at the Department of Social Sciences at the University of Eastern Finland.

Currently, I am involved in a project where we examine security related questions from the perspective of migrants and their families. Our focus is on the different kinds of issues of security on the different levels of everyday life, as well as factors increasing security. My own research work deals primarily with the reception operation and integration of asylum seekers in Finland.

This is my first year in ETMU’s Board as a Deputy Member. In the Board, my main task is to administrate ETMU’s website.
