About this item
This book provides an up to date, critical reading of British immigration and asylum law. It charts chronologically the emergence and evolution of immigration and asylum law in Britain, arguing that it must be understood in the context of Britain's imperial history. British colonialism set in motion much of the post-war migration to Britain. Britain's relationship, and fluctuating commitment, to its empire over the years was a major driving force behind legal change in the field of immigration and asylum law. This book considers the lasting effects of Britain's imperial history, from its shaping of immigration and asylum law and the impact on people seeking entry to Britain, to its fraught and ultimately fractured relationship with the European Union.
