Employment is a key element in the Government's strategy to promote the effective integration of refugees in the UK. The success of this strategy depends on the willingness of employers to make use of the skills and experience that refugees bring with them.

This research explores the attitudes of employers towards refugees and highlights the main issues. It aims to inform those who are in a position to make a difference, and to stimulate further debate on an important area of public policy.
