Welcome to Precarious Lives

Welcome to Precarious Lives, a 2 year research project into experiences of forced labour among asylum seekers and refugees run by academics at the Universities of Leeds and Salford, and funded by the ESRC. This website is both a living archive of our project and a resource for those either interested or active in the area. You can find out more about us, our project and the main issues involved  by clicking on the links above. We will be posting news updates and articles from time to time, and you can follow the latest news about related and relevant issues to do with forced labour and immigration on the RSS feeds in the right hand side of the page.
