Immigration – UK Government assessment

Progress assessment


There has been a sustained or severe regression in the enjoyment of human rights, or a significant reduction in human rights standards or protections in law or policy

The implementation of ‘hostile environment’ immigration policies marked a reduction in human rights protections and court cases have found failures of protection. Reductions in immigration detention are positive, but rates remain significant and there is still no legal limit on the length of detention. The Nationality and Borders Bill, if implemented, poses risks to human rights and could have disproportionate impacts on people sharing protected characteristics.
