Asylum Aid provides high quality legal representation to people seeking asylum in the UK
Asylum Aid campaigns for a fairer and more efficient asylum system
On April 6, changes to the immigration rules introduced a Statelessness Determination Procedure in the UK for the first time. Such a procedure was the keynote recommendation of the joint Asylum Aid/UNHCR report 'Mapping Statelessness in the United Kingdom' (2011).
This briefing provides background to the problem of statelessness in the UK, along with information on how the new procedure works, who it is intended to help, and how to access further information and advice.
Thanks to your hard work, women seeking asylum in the UK have been promised better treatment by the Home Office.
The MissedOut campaign has been a success - but there is still more to do
- »Which way will coalition modernisers jump on asylum policy?
- »'It's ambitious. But we can & must aim to eradicate statelessness within the next decade'
- »Joint Committee on Human Rights finds that Home Office is failing children - our response
- »'We are talking about dignity': watch Asylum Aid give evidence to Parliamentary Committee
