Abstract

Research focussed on a refugee community of Acholi South Sudanese in New Zealand shows the importance of maintaining cultural practices to sustain social networks and keep families connected to their histories and culture. LSE’s Dr Ryan O’Byrne describes the findings, which reveals how the community negotiates between a sense of belonging to the host country and to their country of origin, understood as a defining feature of the early resettlement period.
