The ninth edition of Immigration and Asylum Law provides expert coverage of case law and legislation, along with analysis of the political context and social impact of the law and a strong focus on human rights. The volume guides the reader through this constantly developing area of law. Analysis and commentary on the political, social, and historical dimensions of the law brings the subject to life and encourages readers to engage critically with the issues. This edition has been fully updated with recent cases and developments in the law, including the impacts of Brexit and the Covid-19 pandemic on immigration and the asylum process, coverage of the Windrush scandal, and a discussion of the case of Shamima Begum. It also contains important clarification from the higher courts on the interpretation and application of Part 5A of the NIAA 2002, a consideration of the impacts of the hostile (compliant) environment, updated Home Office guidance on Age Assessment and challenges to detained asylum casework, the Home Office Removals Policy, and the new Immigration Bail provisions.
