The analysis of all the material from the project is still ongoing, and as it emerges key research findings will be posted here, along with links to supporting materials. A final report will be produced and updated here in due course. For the time being, two key research finding documents have been produced. The first is a short policy briefing of key initial findings from the research that can be downloaded from the link below. The second is evidence submitted to the Home Affairs Committee’s investigation into asylum accommodation in the UK. This evidence submission was based on research findings from this project and can be found through the link below.

Work from the Producing Urban Asylum project has also fed into policy reports and findings from two third sector groups – the Northern Ireland Community of Refugees and Asylum Seekers (NICRAS), and the Scottish Refugee Council. Details and links to each report are below.
