This chapter considers the refused asylum seekers and discusses destitution, poverty, and social networks. It begins with a discussion of the European policy context and the status of destitution in the UK. The chapter ends with a section on some asylum seekers who do not return for voluntary assisted return due to fear of persecution and those who do not receive support from the state. Several excerpts of personal accounts are provided as well.

Keywords:   refused asylum seekers, European policy context, destitution, UK, voluntary assisted return, persecution, poverty, social networks
