Announcing an exciting research collaboration between King's College London & Reset

30 June 2020

This year, Reset will be collaborating with researchers at King’s College London on a project titled 'Evaluating Community Sponsorship in the UK: Building constructive social relationships between refugee families, sponsorship groups and wider communities'.

Through focus groups, questionnaires, and visual methods, the project will investigate the types of relationships established between refugee families and Community Sponsorship Groups. Exploring the role of discourse in the development of social relationships between refugee families and Groups, as well as with the wider community, the project will evaluate the outcomes of the UK Community Sponsorship scheme. A first of its kind, the research aims to offer recommendations to community sponsorship groups on building constructive social relationships with refugee families.  

The project will be led by Dr. Leonie Ansems de Vries, a leading specialist in migration research and Chair of King’s College London Migration Research Group. She will be supported by researcher Dr. Jenny Barrett, a specialist in critical research methods.  

Reset will provide more information and updates as the project gets underway. In the meantime, if you have any questions please get in touch
