Abstract

In the last 12 months there has been close examination of the 'asylum crisis' by a range of interested parties, from government and NGOs to the tabloid press and the British public. As well as the 'numbers issue' and questions about routes of access into Britain, the very nature and purpose of the 1999 Immigration and Asylum Act has been called to account, particularly regarding policies on dispersal and vouchers. How are these debates being framed, what is the human cost and the best way forward?
