New CentreForum report sets out the need for 21 changes to the UK asylum system

 

The policy thinktank “CentreForum”, has published a paper setting out views on how the UK’s asylum system should be reformed to bring about fairer outcomes and make procedures more efficient.

 

‘A place of sanctuary? Creating a fair and efficient asylum system’ argues that the current system is anachronistic in that it was designed to manage a large influx of asylum seekers at the turn of the millennium. Asylum numbers have fallen sharply since then and hostility towards those seeking sanctuary has mellowed somewhat. It is therefore an opportune time to reform some of the most draconian elements of the asylum process without undermining public confidence.

 

The paper is the final publication of a three part series aimed at setting a liberal agenda in UK immigration policy. CentreForum previously published ‘Migration: a liberal challenge’ (January 2014) and ‘The business case for immigration reform’ (December 2013).
