    Personal profile

    Research interests

    My research is primarily focused on social protection for asylum seekers and refugees in host countries. I have expertise in conducting qualitative, multiple-methods research (semi-structured interviews, participant observation and focus groups) and I have a comprehensive understanding of issues related to forced migration and practices in the UK. My doctoral thesis, ‘The Self and The System: Social Protection Experiences of Asylum Seekers and Refugees Living in Glasgow’, makes a significant contribution to knowledge about perceptions of asylum seekers and refugees and their agency in a system that vulnerablises them. This multiple methods research project produced unique findings about how asylum seekers and refugees access and use support and negotiate the often-hostile system. While findings have implications for informing policy and practice, this research has contributed to migration and social protection literature by applying the concept of social protection and illustrates the significance and interconnectedness of various forms of social protection.
