About this item

A Guide to The Immigration Act 2016 is produced in association with ILPA and provides a clear and straightforward explanation of the provisions of this legislation, with relevant commentary following each section of the Act. Those litigating will be able to identify all relevant sources and materials rapidly. Practitioners from other areas of law affected by the provisions in the context of housing, social welfare, and employment law will rapidly be able to navigate these complex provisions and understand them. The UK Government stated that its purpose in bringing forward this legislation was to tackle illegal immigration by making it harder to live and work in the United Kingdom without permission. The Immigration Act 2016, not only makes changes to immigration law and practice, but also extends immigration control into other areas, such as housing, social welfare, and employment to create the 'hostile environment' envisaged. This book summarizes each provision of the Act, and sets it within both its political and legal context, providing full legal references, as well as identifying relevant guidance, supporting materials, and statements from parliamentary debates. The aim of the publication is to provide practitioners, and academic and political commentators, with a comprehensive guide to the Act, the bulk of the work being comments on the legal provisions interleaved with each section of the Act. [Subject: Immigration Law, Human Rights Law, Nationality Law, Refugee Law]
