Policy Overviews

A number of UK third-sector organisations continue to review and report upon the asylum system.

There have been a number of reports on the asylum system by national and international statutory and voluntary bodies

There have also been a number of external reviews of UK government asylum policy.

Many individual reports are referenced in the book, particularly in Chapter 2., or can be found through the websites of organisations listed in the Resources section.

Some current resources

The Free Movement website, run by the barrister Colin Yeo and colleagues, offers helpful updates, commentary, training and advice on immigration and asylum law.  They also have a helpful weekly newsletter.


With the increasing pressure on, and concerns about, accommodation for newly-arrived people seeking asylum in the UK, the Medact Migrant Solidarity Group published ‘The Medical Consequences of “Contingency Accommodation” for People Seeking Asylum’ in November 2022.
