Abstract

The current climate in the UK is that of an 'asylum clampdown'. The current Home Secretary has vowed that asylum legislation will be 'tough' in response to popular perceptions that the UK is 'a soft touch' for applicants (TRAVIS 2003b) . Measures are being taken to make entering the UK more difficult and to make the removal of those who fail with their asylum application easier and quicker. In addi­ tion, the social support that asylum seekers are entitled to is being reduced, and the use of detention and removal centres is being utilised more frequently.
