Since 2016, Dr Peter Lugosi from the Oxford School of Hospitality Management, Dr Clara Della Croce and Dr Sonia Morano-Foadi from the School of Law have been researching how refugees transition into employment. This work has now been extended through a British Academy Newton funded project involving Dr Thiago Allis from the University of Sáo Paulo, Brazil.
