Abstract

Research with refugees and asylum seekers tends to be divided into research with adults or research with children under the age of 18. This is despite relational approaches to studying age that contest such dichotomous and fixed understandings of ‘life-stages’. This article seeks to provide an insight into the experiences of young women who in legal, policy and migration research terms are placed along the borders of this category divide. The article explores the experiences of young (16- to 25-year-old) refugee and asylum-seeking women in the UK and examines the role of im/mobility in their negotiations of home.
