Abstract

The book engages with the debates thrown up by the struggles of migrants, refugees and anti-racists, straddling the barrier which often exists between academic and political debates. It provides support to those unwittingly drawn into administering controls, showing how the role of welfare workers as immigration control enforcers is not a sudden imposition but has existed since the introduction of controls in 1905.
