Survey Research on Expats' Trailing Partners (Hannover)

Dear Expat Spouse/Partner,

My name is Dan Shen and I am writing my master thesis on expatriates‘ trailing spouses/partners at the University of Göttingen, Germany. In particular, I am interested in the general living experiences of expatriate spouses/partners in the host location and what helps them adapt to the new country. For instance, I would like to find out about the role of cultural intelligence.

Expatriate spouses have not received much attention in the research on global mobility. Thus, I kindly ask for your support in this important endeavor. You can access our survey using this link:
