[en] This dissertation is guided by an overarching interest in integrating social-environmental factors
into models of immigrant adolescent health, well-being and health behavior.
While such ecological models are enjoying increasing popularity within health research as a whole, research concerned with immigrant adolescents in particular, has, as of yet, paid only little attention to social-environmental factors.
To address this gap in the literature, informed by an ecological perspective, the current dissertation focusses on the role of social-environmental factors in immigrant
adolescent health, well-being and health behavior.
All of the studies compiled in this dissertation seek to exemplarily illustrate the relevance
of one of the investigated social contexts (school-class, receiving country, origin country) by
assessing the role that particular factors pertaining to the context play for a particular health related outcome.
