What is the situation confronting 'refugees' and immigrants who enter Europe and North America? While this issue has received considerable attention in the press there has been too little in-depth research examining the issues which confront those who seek asylum. This conference seeks to remedy that gap by bringing together innovative new research by anthropologists, sociologists, lawyers, historians, social scientists, asylum/immigrant advocates and human rights activists in the form of cutting-edge case studies of the political institutions, bureaucratic obstacles, legal issues and socio-political process that asylum seekers confront.
