New Europeans on the move: a preliminary review of the onward migration of refugees within the European Union


By Anna Lindley and Nicholas Van Hear

The onward movement of new citizens of refugee backgrounds within the European Union is an apparently growing pattern in European mobility which has largely been overlooked. This paper reviews the still limited evidence relating to these movements, focusing on the relocation of Somali and Tamil Sri Lankan Europeans from continental Europe to the UK , and discusses the conceptual and practical issues raised by this mobility, outlining an agenda for future research.

Key words: Refugees, European Union, citizenship, secondary migration
