    42. How is Covid-19 affecting disabled asylum seekers?

    42. How is Covid-19 affecting disabled asylum seekers?

    Covid-19 has presented challenges for everyone, but some people are more affected than others. People with disabilities have not been able to socially distance to the extent that others can, and trying to do so may come with extra costs. For disabled asylum seekers, who in the UK are prevented from working and earning a living, this presents additional and significant challenges.

    41. Must immigration laws be obeyed?

    41. Must immigration laws be obeyed?

    Many people believe that some or all immigration laws are unjust. Does that imply that citizens and migrants don’t have to obey those laws? Do some of us even have a duty to resist them? Is it possible to believe that migrants don’t have to comply with immigration laws even if you think states have a right to exclude immigrants?

    38. Is there a link between colonialism, asylum and Brexit?

    38. Is there a link between colonialism, asylum and Brexit?

    What role does colonialism play in contemporary asylum and migration politics? Do European asylum and migration policies reflect colonial power relations, or is colonialism something that exits in the past whilst different logics govern contemporary migration policies? And can the link between colonialism and asylum and migration even tell us something about Brexit?

    Lucy Mayblin, Senior Leturer in Sociology at the University of Sheffield. This episode is particularly focused on Mayblin's book
    Asylum After Empire: Colonial Legacies in the Politics of Asylum Seeking.
