Abstract

In this article, Sin Yi Cheung and Jenny Phillimore analyse the government’s Survey of New Refugees to get a sense of what works for asylum seekers. They find that the mere possession of social networks was not enough to enhance access to employment. Therefore, they argue for shifting focus away from social networks and towards more functional matters; for instance, improving language competency and housing asylum seekers closer to or with friends and relatives
