Detail

Home Office Research Report 35 summarises the key findings and implications of the Survey of New Refugees (SNR), a longitudinal study of refugee integration in the UK. 

The survey included all new refugees who were granted a positive decision of asylum, humanitarian protection or discretionary leave to remain between 1 December 2005 and 25 March 2007. Postal questionnaires were issued soon after refugees received a positive decision on their asylum claim (baseline) and 8, 15 and 21 months later.

The survey provided information on the characteristics of refugees at the time of their asylum decision and their integration in the UK over 21 months.
