OMICS 2019 Keynote: Framing Refugee Integration: A critical reflection on conceptual, and policy and practice principles

Lecture, Conference

Keynote speech by Jenny Phillimore at OMICS 2019: Framing Refugee Integration: a critical reflection on conceptual, and policy and practice principles.

The UK's Home Office has recently published a renewed set of refugee integration indicators, emanating from three years of co-production with academics, policymakers, practitioners and refugees.

This presenation critically examines the conceptual and policy and practice principles which underpin the framework.

Focusing in turn on multi-dimensionality, multi-directionality, non-linearity, shared responsibilities and the importance of context we use vignettes to illustrate how the principles play out empirically.

We highlight the contradictions of a Government sponsored framework of aspiration founded on the principles which sits alongside the UK Government's dominant anti-migrant rhetoric and hostile (compliant) environment policy and practice.

In conclusion we argue that the indicator framework offers much potential to account for the complexity of integration processes but the principles underpinning them needed to be implemented beyond integration policy if the indicators are to truly shape integration policy and practice in the UK and elsewhere.
