Policy item - Understanding asylum trends in 2021: briefing paper - November 2021

Date: November 2021


In recent months, there has been considerable focus in media and politics on migrant crossings of the Channel via small boats and the impact this has on the asylum system. This has led to government proposals to reform the asylum system.

This briefing considers the latest asylum data, the wider asylum context, and the possible impact on local communities. It's aimed at those who already have a working knowledge on asylum, and it contains:

  • Summary.
  • What do the latest asylum statistics say?
  • What is the UK government saying?
  • What are the pressures on the asylum system?
  • What is the impact on local communities?
