A view over central Oxford

This research aims to understand how Syrian refugee families who came to Oxfordshire via the Syrian Vulnerable Person Resettlement Scheme (SVPRS) have been adapting to life in the UK. Following the completion of the second phase of research in April 2019, with new funding from the John Fell Fund this study has entered a third phase from September 2019. The scope is now expanded to include: 1) SVPRS families who were settled in other districts of Oxfordshire, and 2) Syrian refugees who did not use SVPRS but spontaneously chose to settle in Oxford of their own accord. In addition, this study will investigate ‘best practices’ of other refugee integration support schemes for (Syrian) refugees in and outside the UK, and their potential applicability within the context of Oxfordshire. A research brief and a working paper were published between 2018 and 2019.
