Doing research with refugees

This chapter provides two case studies that show how a wider evidence base of refugee experiences and voices might be created using past research by non-government officials. The first case study is on understanding why asylum seekers come to the UK. It examines a recent piece of policy-oriented research that was commissioned by the Home Office and subsequently recognises its methodological rigidity. The second case study is about a national refugee-integration policy, which suggests that the existing evidence base of refugee voices and experiences needs to be supplemented and complemented to create a realistic picture of the effects of policies.
