In this bonus episode, following on from our episode with Emily Edwards of the Scottish Refugee Council, we speak to Ryan Powell, Reader in Urban Studies in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at the University of Sheffield.

Ryan spoke to us about the Migrant Youth Integration in Europe project, the research undertaken by the project, and the findings around the experience of young migrants in the UK, and the exclusions and displacement that they face.

Equality in Housing

Equality in Housing is our podcast series delivered in partnership with the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence. The aim of the podcast is to offer insights and experiences that highlight the work taking place around Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in housing in ‘real time’, from those with on-the-ground experience and expertise. It exists to showcase the excellent work taking place, a chance to share insights, best practice and challenges, as well as reflect on the use of research and evidence in day-to-day practices, or whether research and evidence needs to be more accessible.


Equality in Housing is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Podcasts, and Amazon.
