This chapter centres on the labour market experiences and perceptions of refugees in London. It studies the role of the refugee sector in the facilitation of refugee entry into the labour market in the UK. The chapter also looks at the barriers faced by the refugees in an environment dominated by tightening borders, employers' prejudice, and general hostility towards asylum seekers and refugees, to name a few. It aims to study how practice at agency level could be influenced by and can influence policy, and how a global understanding of refugee issues can affect the way refugees are treated at a local level.

Keywords:   labour market experiences, refugee perceptions, refugee sector, refugee entry, barriers, refugee issues
