Stewart (2012) UK Dispersal policy and onward migration: Mapping the current state of knowledge

Summary:

Stewart (2012) delivers a summary of what is already known about onward migration of asylum seekers along with an examination of the complexity of such migratory flows. The study is framed within the context of UK Government dispersal policy. The research counters the existing body of literature on dispersal which was based on a policy critique and, was chiefly focussed on issues of void housing and placement within deprived areas. Notably, these policies have led to isolation and discrimination. The author suggests a number of approaches for improving how information on onward migration of asylum seekers is gathered and analysed. The study highlights existing gaps in current understandings of onward migration in this group and demonstrates the complex nature of the movement undertaken along with the diversity of the individuals involved. Also see Stewart (2009).
