A Tale of Two Walls
Author: Louise Pirouet
Publisher: Berghahn Books
View: 1310Refugees and asylum-seekers are high up on many people's political agenda, and there is much misinformation about them. Who are these asylum-seekers? Aren't they almost all 'bogus'? How does the Home Office decide whether or not they are genuine? Isn't the UN convention on Refugees out of date and in need of renegotiating? This book is based on visits to places where asylum seekers are detained, on working with lawyers representing asylum-seekers and on a close knowledge of many of the refugee organisations. It argues passionately that Britain should not throw away, through ignorance and misunderstanding, a reputation for providing a place of safety for the persecuted who have much to contribute to national life

Historical and Contemporary Perspectives

Category: Asylum, Right of
View: 5506The past decade has witnessed unprecedented activity in the field of UK asylum law, with four major Acts passed in nine years. Yet asylum seekers and refugees are not a new phenomenon in the UK, nor is the perception of them as a problem. "UK Asylum Law and Policy" provides a critical analysis of the development of legislation in this area, charting the definition and ongoing redefinition of the asylum seeker in the eyes of the law. It examines the concept of asylum, how it has evolved, and the law and practice to which it has given rise. By combining historical and contemporary perspectives, and taking account of national, European and international determinants, the book provides a wide-ranging and up-to-date conspectus of major developments and issues in UK asylum law and policy.
