Current research: “Let the right one in”. Transcending borders, barriers & binaries; widening access to Higher Education for forced migrants. Forced migrants seeking sanctuary outside their country of origin constitute one of the most “undesirable” migrant groups, which is reflected in their marginalisation within society. My research seeks to explore how this marginalisation is both enacted and resisted at the institutional level, through exploring the barriers experienced by forced migrants who seek access to Higher Education.
