Project description

My research focuses on the lives of Syrians in North East England, with particular emphasis on the effects of the varying immigration routes and their subsequent impact on individuals' sense of belonging and work-life integration. With a background in languages, I spent several months learning Arabic to better facilitate my ethnographically-inspired approach to data collection.
