Pairity is an end-to-end platform for refugee newcomer integration. It works with local partners to match newcomers with volunteers, and then evaluate the impacts of access to social networks on integration. Working locally means low costs and barriers to participation, while harnessing the best aspects of community sponsorship. Pairity was designed to be scalable, adaptable, and meet the high bar for evidence-based policy. It is grounded in an interdisciplinary research project to generate evidence about social networks, integration, and social cohesion.
