Ragna Lillevik is a researcher at Fafo. Her work covers a number of topics related to the policy areas of immigration, integration and diversity. Many of the projects Lillevik has led or worked on have been evaluations of public measures within the asylum administration or the integration field. Lillevik has also researched governance of Islam in Norway for her PhD, as part of the interdisciplinary project "Muslim Politics and Governance of Islam: Interactions of Structure and Culture in Multireligious Europe".

Lillevik has extensive empirical knowledge of Norwegian immigration, integration and diversity policy. She is particularly interested in how politics is implemented and works in practice, and therefore often studies the encounters between different groups of refugees, immigrants and minorities, and public services. She has extensive experience with qualitative fieldwork and methods such as case studies, observation, focus groups and qualitative interviews, as well as experience with online surveys. Dissemination to stakeholders and the general public is an integrated part of all her projects at Fafo.
