Refugees & Asylum

Building broad public support for refugee protection in the UK is key to defending the protection framework and achieving
policy change.

How can voices in civil society and politics make the case for refugee protection to those who are sceptical about the asylum system and whether Britain can cope with the scale of the crisis?

British Future disseminates research into public attitudes and messages that resonate with persuadable sceptics, to help organisations working on refugee protection communicate more effectively.

We are proud to be part of Refugee Week each year.
