The focus of my project is education for asylum seekers and refugees (forced migrants) in Wales.
 My main research question is to understand how parents going through the asylum process in Wales experience both barriers to and benefits from any forms of adult education.

I plan to work in direct collaboration with voluntary and third sector organisations who support forced migrants. I will be partnering with Oasis Cardiff, in particular. This should enable me to build the positive relationships that will aid me with my longitudinal qualitative research methods. My research should directly impact policy provision for local organisations and potentially the Welsh Government.
