Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Abstract

The paper focuses on the legal dimension of integration and investigates the interface between legal status and refugee integration in the UK context. Legal status shapes one’s legal environment and therefore has significant implications for integration. For the purposes of this paper, integration is conceptualized as a multidimensional two-way process that starts upon arrival in the host state. This forms the basis for assessing whether the refugees’ journey from asylum seeker to citizen as set out in UK migration law supports their integration. This paper comes at a time when the UK Government is reforming its immigration system and making important changes to the path to British citizenship.
