Abstract: No Direction Home? The Politics of Return for Refused Asylum Seekers focuses on routes of return for asylum seekers whose claims have been refused. Since coming into power the New Labour government have placed considerable emphasis on returning refused asylum seekers – forcibly or otherwise. Ensuring that the number of removals of refused asylum seekers is greater than what are classed as ‘unfounded’ asylum applications is described as ‘performance improvement’. These removal policies have been implemented, frequently, in the face of warnings from NGOs, lawyers, independent experts and even the UNHCR that deportations may well lead to torture and severe injury.
