Book Description

4 April 2005 Mission & Public Affairs Counc
A Place of Refuge tackles the topical issue of asylum in the UK. Against a background of ignorance, racism and media bias, the Christian Church is called by God to show care of the marginalized. After exploring this biblical call to offer hospitality, A Place of Refuge examines the claims made against refugees - that they are lazy, uneducated or involved in criminal activity - and uses statistical evidence to show that these claims are largely unfounded. It explains the legal and factual basis of the asylum system and highlights the positive contribution that refugees make to the UK. It includes: practical suggestions for action at a local and national level; useful contacts and resources. Based on up-to-date detailed research, this study is a positive and challenging contribution to an important debate.
