Research

We carry out research and publish reports to highlight the experiences of refugees and illustrate the impact of policies on their lives.

We use the evidence from our research to influence key areas of government policy and legislation, in order to improve the asylum system and the integration of refugees.

In this section you can find Refugee Council reports, old and new, and reports produced in partnership with other organisations.
