Mulvey (2013) In search of normality: Refugee integration in Scotland
Providing both a summary and full report version, this Scottish Refugee Council sponsored report authored by Mulvey (2013) offers a substantial resource for anyone interested in the integration of refugees in Scotland. A particular strength of the report is its accessibility. Clearly presented findings include data gathered from the perspective of the refugee community. The report covers key indicators for integration (such as employment, housing, education, health and social community), as well as the factors used in the Indicators of Integration framework by Ager and Strang (2004). There are a considerable number of studies on this topic, see for example Aspinall and Watters (2010), Candappa et al. (2007) on education provision, Kirkwood et al. (2014) on refugee and asylum seeker integration discourse and studies which consider refugee skills and employment issues – Guest and Vecchia (2010), Smyth and Kum (2010), and Stewart (2005).
