Abstract

Countries provide welfare and administrative services for asylum seekers and refugees but increasingly, these, like other public services, have been subject to privatisation and other forms of Public –Private Partnerships (PPPs). In some countries, the privatisation of these services has been taking place for long enough to show not only the poor quality of services and working conditions but the long term effects of privatising services which were traditionally part of welfare services. The recent increase in refugees has also led to new business opportunities for companies, many of which are providers of other public services such as prison services or social care. This report examines the effects of the privatisation of services for refugees and migrants at national and international level.
