Jonathan Price Research Officer

+ 44 (0)1865 274564

Jonathan Price is a Research Officer at COMPAS. His work focuses on migrant destitution, social care and children & families.

Jonathan’s current research at COMPAS is exploring the role of NGOs in safeguarding migrant children. Another recent study examined the policies and practices of local authorities in England and Wales whose duties include the operation of a safety net for destitute migrant children and their families.

Jonathan is also working on two projects as part of the Global Exchange on Migration and Diversity. Migration Services in Wales aims to engage stakeholders, including the Welsh Government, to increase understanding of migration, asylum, and integration policy and practice, and facilitate the development of a ‘strategic approach’ to migration in Wales. The second project, Action for Inclusion in Europe, aims to secure tangible reforms in European city practices through action orientated learning exchange. Jonathan is leading the work package focusing on homelessness for this project.

Jonathan has previously worked as a Researcher at the Information Centre about Asylum and Refugees (ICAR) at City University, London, and, most recently, as a Policy Officer for the No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF) Network. He has a degree in Social Anthropology and Development Studies from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).
