Making Asylum Seekers Legible and Visible: An Analysis of the Dilemmas and Mitigating Strategies of Asylum Advocacy in the UK and US
Start date: 01 September 2010
End date: 31 December 2011
This research will compare the approaches of different pro-asylum organisations in Britain and America using questionnaires and interviews. It aims to:

facilitate dialogue between different types of asylum activist organisations in order to promote best practice and the mitigation of risks
to provide a means by which asylum advocacy organisations can share their concerns and their proposed solutions about the challenges they face
to examine the different dilemmas that different asylum advocacy organisations, including advisory/legal, religious-affiliated, health-focused activist groups and campaign/awareness raising groups face either side of the Atlantic.
This research brings together an international and interdisciplinary team of scholars and aims to have a high impact not only within academia but also among the asylum activist community.
