Abstract

1. This written evidence examines the effectiveness of the UK-Rwanda Agreement that was published on 12 December 2023. In doing so, it addresses questions one, two, three and six.
2. This evidence was prepared by academic staff researching and teaching in the field of immigration and asylum law at Queen Mary University of London and the University of Greenwich. The author previously worked in the field of immigration and asylum law for a substantial number of years, therefore the last part of the response to this call for evidence considers some of the more practical matters that have arisen in the UK-Rwanda Agreement. This evidence highlights the problematic nature of the UK-Rwanda Agreement and argues that it fails to deal with the concerns that were raised by the Supreme Court in its judgment dated 15 November 2023, and thus argues that those that may be relocated to Rwanda will not be offered adequate protection.
