Abstract

What does it feel like to be a refugee, seeking asylum in the
UK? Many of us are famili
ar with the typical negative media
portrayal of refugees as being a threat to the UK’s economy
and security. Yet the reality is that the majority of people
seeking asylum are likely to be escaping from situations in
which their lives are under threat. In t
his research, we
aimed to provide a better understanding of the situations
that drive refugees to seek asylum and their experiences
once
they arrive in the UK.
