Britain's role in protecting people on the move

A safe haven?

A safe haven? Britain's role in protecting people on the move, April 2016

Across Europe, people who have fled human rights violations, conflict, violence and hardship are living in inhumane conditions. Thousands have drowned trying to reach the continent.

While the UK government has been a leader in providing assistance to countries hosting large numbers of refugees, it has fallen short of its moral responsibility to provide safe routes to protection for people seeking refuge in the UK. And has failed to advocate for an approach that protects the rights of all people on the move.

This report, published by Oxfam GB in partnership with 12 other agencies, provides an overview of what the UK should do to deliver on its responsibility to respond to global displacement.
