Hirst, C., & Atto, N. (2018). United Kingdom - Country Report. Legal and Policy Framework of Migration Governance. https://doi.org/10.17863/CAM.32257
This report explores the legal and policy framework of migration governance in the United Kingdom (UK). It shows that migration governance is complicated, reactive, and that the needs of immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers have been eroded at the expense of border control overtime. The constitutional organisation of the state has contributed to these features of immigration policy. Evidence of the complexity, reactivity and restrictiveness of migration governance is found in the UK’s legislative framework, the legal status of foreigners, the reception system and post-refugee crisis reforms. This report is one of a series of 11 country reports.
