This briefing sets out how refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK are protected by our Human Rights Act. We look at who has human rights, set out the duties on public authorities, and explore some of the human rights issues that refugees and people seeking asylum may face. We also take a look at some real life examples of how refugees and people seeking asylum have used our Human Rights Act to change their lives for the better.
