Abstract

This chapter analyses UK asylum policies since 1999 in the context of wider neoliberal approaches to migration, which present labour market demand and personal wealth as the dominant criteria for mobility. It considers refugee claims as an implicit challenge to these criteria because they are universal and needs-based. It argues that dispersal, prohibition of paid work and detention of asylum seekers have coountered this challenge and thereby reinforced labour market discipline over migrants.
