Scottish Refugee Council (2010) – Integration Literature Review
This review provides an overview of research conducted on refugee integration. The Scottish Refugee Council’s Integration Literature Review (2010) provides an accessible and very succinct resource. The review provides important clarification of the definitions which lie at the heart of academic study of refugee experiences. The report identifies the Ager and Strang (2004) model as the most suitable framework for empirical study of the topic. In addition, the efficacy of Ager and Strang’s framework is highlighted by the central position that is occupies in much of the research that is reviewed. The review concludes that the study of refugee integration is, and must continue to be, multifaceted. This is due to the broad range of social and cultural factors which impact on refugee integration. The review concludes by underscoring the need for a full comparative study of refugee integration with that of other sectors of society, both migrant and non migrant.
