This presentation will discuss results from a large longitudinal study of refugees who were resettled to England under the Gateway Protection Programme prior to 2010.

The study was conducted between 2014 and 2016 and involved questionnaires with 280 resettled refugee at 3 time-points, interviews and focus groups. The research design has enabled the team to explore longer term integration outcomes and to identify some of the processes that help to facilitate life after resettlement. The project adopted a broad understanding of integration encompassing tangible spheres, such as employment, education, housing and health, and also less tangible markers of integration such as self-efficacy, contact with the British majority, cultural understanding and wellbeing.

There will be a a chance to hear an overview of the findings in relation to the linkages between these different spheres, and the findings around English language and employment. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of the implications of the findings for integration policy more broadly.
