Refugee community organisations and dispersal: Networks, resources and social capital

David Griffiths


This book is distinctive in combining theoretical discussion on the role of networks, resources, and social capital with fieldwork evidence and interviews with members of Refugee Community Organisations (RCOs), non-governmental organisations, and statutory authorities. It critically examines the impact of dispersal and current legislative change on refugee communities and RCOs, explores the integrative role of RCOs, assesses the race-relations framework in Britain and its effects on refugee organisations, and provides a thorough and up-to-date literature review.

Keywords: Refugee Community Organisations, non-governmental organisations, statutory authorities, dispersal, legislative change, refugee communities, race-relations framework, refugee organisations
