This study is the first nationally based assessment of how major policy changes between 1993 and 1996 have affected housing provision for asylum seekers and refugees. The specific aims are to examine the experience of Registered Social Landlords [RSLs] in providing housing for refugees and asylum seekers and their responses to the 1996 Asylum and Immigration Act; to document good practice; and to examine the housing needs of asylum seekers and refugees. Through carrying out detailed case studies in London, Manchester and Birmingham, the study seeks compare the London experience to those of other large cities.
