Our policy and campaigns work is directly based on our experience providing legal advice and representation to asylum seekers. We look to influence both Government policy and public opinion, so that asylum seekers are treated fairly and the UK upholds it human rights obligations.
Our research, policy consultations and public campaigns all contribute to Asylum Aid’s work, as well as advocacy with government, MPs, the media and the public.
In order to implement our recommendations, we work closely with the Home Office, the Legal Services Commission, and the Independent Chief Inspector of the UK Border Agency. We also work with legal representatives, academics, the UN Refugee Agency and other organisations in the asylum sector and beyond.
