We are delighted to have received funding from the ESRC-AHRC for this project, which we launched in November 2016!


In December 2016, we welcomed Dr Dimitris Skleparis, who joins our team as a Post-Doc Research Associate.


We are currently designing the first survey to be administered to young Syrians simultaneously in the three host states, scheduled to take place in April 2017.


If you are interested in our research or have any suggestions for enhancing its impact, we would appreciate your feedback.
