Description :
Drawing on empirical research with young refugees and asylum seekers (aged 11-18) now living in Sheffield and Aarhus, the paper explores some of the relationships between identity, belonging and place. The AA. reflect on the young people's sense of identity as Somali. They consider what it means to be Muslim in the context of the different communities of practice. They highlight the importance of being in place for attachment and security, and identify the implications for integration and cohesion policies.
