Show Summary Details


This chapter is composed of a brief overview of the dispersal framework for asylum seekers, which was introduced under the 1999 Immigration and Asylum Act. The central model in the discussion is the partnership model, which informs the reception and settlement of asylum seekers and refugees. The chapter shows that the current national refugee-integration strategy is unique in being based upon the new dispersal arrangements for the reception of asylum seekers in the regions.
