The Impact of Overseas Conflicts on UK Communities

Project overview

Globalisation has intensified and changed the international connections of UK communities. This research studied the impact of conflict on communities in the UK from three areas: Afghanistan/Pakistan, the Great Lakes region (Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Uganda) and the western Balkans.

The findings were presented in a report that:
* looks at why some communities are affected more by overseas conflict than others;
* examines six detailed case studies of communities affected by overseas conflict;
* assesses how different communities challenge assumptions of mainstream society about particular conflicts; and
* considers how service providers at national and local level can support affected communities.
