Researchers and policy-makers have a limited understanding of the ways in which confl icts overseas are affecting communities in the UK, except when there are substantial fl ows of asylum seekers and migrants from confl ict regions. Yet globalisation has intensifi ed and changed the international connections of UK communities. This research studied the impact of confl ict on communities in the UK from three areas: Afghanistan/Pakistan, the Great Lakes region (Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Uganda) and the western Balkans.
