Attendees will gain:

  • An understanding of the definitions of refugees and asylum seekers;
  • An insight into the reasons people seek asylum;
  • An awareness of different routes to protection such as asylum, resettlement and refugee family reunion; and
  • Knowledge of the challenges and barriers to integration that refugees and asylum seekers may face in the UK.
