It is evidently clear from the discussion that refugee convention defines asylum seeker as an individual who seeks refuge in another country for fear of being persecuted in his or her own country for various reasons such as political opinion, religion, race, nationality or identifying himself with a specific group. On the contrary, the definition is insufficient to signify the violation of individual human rights or to show that he or she has been prosecuted by the state. In that case, if an individual’s case for seeking asylum is not conventional, she or he is not granted humanitarian protection or decretory leave. There exist various reasons why there is an increment in number in terms of individuals seeking asylum in Britain. Young people and children seeking refuge in Britain are not a phenomenon that is new. It has occurred over decades. Majority of them evade from situations such as economic hardship, abuse, and war. Nevertheless, in the late 1980s, asylum seekers getting into Britain increased significantly because of increased military and civil conflict, environmental degradation, and the state structures break down in the Eastern side of Europe that dislocated individuals from their homes. This triggered the British governments to implement policies that are restrictive on asylum. The policies have resulted in increased difficulties for refugees to access Britain. In addition to that, they have greatly reduced asylum seekers rights to welfare provision and social support. In 1982, successful refugee applications decreased from fifty-nine percent (59%) to 10 %( ten percent) in the 1990s. Entry conditions have inflamed debates and Fortress Europe policy creation making it difficult for Britain to come up with formal programs and policies for refugees’ resettlement. Britain asylum seekers originate from ten principal countries. These are such as Zimbabwe, Sudan, Afghanistan, India, Eritrea, Pakistan, Iraq, Somalia, China, and Iran. They account for 60% (sixty percent) of all applications for asylum seeking. In 2003, a majority of asylum seekers came from Iran, Zimbabwe, China, Iraq, and Somali thus accounting for 38% of all the applicants.
