Abstract

What does it feel like to be a refugee, seeking asylum in the UK? Many of us are familiar with the typical negative portrayal of refugees being a threat to the UK's economy and security. Yet the reality is the majority of people seeking asylum are likely to be escaping from situations in which their lives are under threat. In this research, we aimed to provide a better understanding of the situations that drive refugees to seek asylum and their experiences once their arrive in the UK.
