After Return: Young people forcibly removed to Afghanistan

05 April 2016


2,018 young men who spent their formative teenage years in the UK care system have been sent back to Afghanistan over the past 9 years, often to very precarious and dangerous situations.

Since March 2014, RSN has been systematically monitoring what happens to former child asylum seekers who have been forcibly removed to Afghanistan after turning 18.

After Return documents their experiences and, for the first time, fills a vital evidence gap in their education, employment, health and wellbeing outcomes. 

The event will be chaired by Elaine Chase at UCL Institute of Education, an advisory group member  for the project and Principal Investigator on a related ESRC-funded project 'Becoming Adult'. Other speakers include an Afghan former child asylum seeker and RSN's Kabul-based Monitoring Officer.
