In the everyday lives of asylum seekers in Britain, the British and trans-national media are a key factor in the construction of identity, including national and gendered identities. The media play a role in the individual asylum seeker's notions of where she or he belongs, and what language skills she or he can acquire. Drawing on a series of focus groups conducted in 2005–2007, this study explores the gendered needs and uses for media amongst different cultural groups of asylum seekers, refugees, and their receiving communities in south Wales, UK.
