  • Cornelius Ani (a1)
Extract

Successive UK governments have introduced increasingly tough asylum policies. Recent immigration legislations (for example the Asylum and Immigration Act 1999 and the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002) have continued this tradition. The dramatic reduction in asylum applications by 54% between 2002 and 2004 (Heath & Jeffries, 2005) suggests these measures are effective and hence politically attractive.
