Refugee Inclusion Strategy – its Impact on Integration in Newport

Author: Efrem Mengisteab, University of Newport 2013

BA dissertation which examined the impact of the 2008 Refugee Inclusion Strategy of Wales on the integration of young asylum seekers and refugees aged between 16 and 25, living in Newport City. The study explored the young people’s own perception of integration, and their experience and challenges throughout the process in relation to social and youth provisions. Qualitative methodology was adopted as the best approach for this study in order to explore experiences, emotions and feelings as well as identifying problems. Interviews were conducted with fourteen young asylum seekers and refugees in order to address the research topic.

Despite the fact that the youth service has a responsibility to deliver services as stated in the Refugee Inclusion Strategy, and despite the fact that effective youth service plays a significant role in promoting young people’s educational, personal and social development in every aspect, this study finds that the majority of the participants did not have knowledge or experience of youth work delivered by the youth service in Newport City. Some related youth work was facilitated by voluntary groups to support this vulnerable group of people. The Newport Youth Service needs to reach out to these disadvantaged young people with greater awareness and understanding to ensure inclusion for sustainable integration.
