This thesis aims to represent the experiences of individuals from this group within the broader contexts of refugee resettlement. A fundamental aspect of these experiences is the ambiguous and often contradictory belonging described. Using narratives through which these individuals make sense of their resettlement experiences, agency is an important consideration in experiences of belonging and, therefore, I argue that the role of agency to belonging should be more widely recognised.
