Reconsidering the Role of Conflict in the Lives of Refugees: The Case of Somalis in Europe
Susan Zimmermann () and

No 45, Research Working Papers from MICROCON - A Micro Level Analysis of Violent Conflict
Based upon qualitative research with Somali refugees in two European host countries – the UK and the Netherlands - this paper explores the micro-level experiences and ongoing effects of the Somali conflict on their lives in exile. Challenging predominant macro-level framings of refugees in these settings, it supports a micro-level analysis of their experiences and lives. It analyses their ongoing connections with the conflict in Somalia, and reveals how this can affect aspects of their integration and emotional health while in exile, alongside social problems such as poverty, drug use and divorce.
