UK: Seeking Refuge? A handbook for asylum-seeking women
Source: Rights of Women (UK)
From the Foreword:
Since 2009, when Seeking Refuge? was first published, immigration and asylum law has become even more complex, with new restrictions on rights and procedures imposed by the Government at the same time as new legal rights emerge from the UK Supreme Court and the Courts of the European Union. The Government’s decision to withdraw immigration law from the scope of legal aid create real threats to the availability of specialist legal advice and representation for women seeking asylum, as well as removing legal aid altogether from many women with complex immigration cases which do not fit within the legal definition of an asylum claim.
Our aim is that this book will provide a clear practical starting-point for asylum-seeking women and organisations providing support to them, at a time when legal advice and representation are becoming increasingly hard to find.
