The UK, along with most European countries, has implemented deten-ent policies including, but not limited to, compulsory dispersal that, arguably, aim to deter potential economic migrants from entering its territory. This study of dispersed governance of asylum in the UK is organised into eight chapters. The first two provide, respectively, a review and analysis of the literature and a discussion of the methodology employed. Chapters 3,4 and 5 provide an analysis of the policy and practice of dispersal of asylum seekers in the UK and examines their impact on some of the most ssential needs of asylum seekers; accommodation, employment and legal services. Chapter 6 explores the effects of dispersal on integration and community cohesion, while Chapter 7 investigates the impact of dispersal on the government's capacity to manage asylum under partnership. The study's main findings are summarized in Chapter 8.
