Abstract

The purpose of my study was the demonstrate the vastly different attitudes that evolved in countries towards refugees settling in their country. The United Kingdoms is a special case because of the vastly different political views and demographics when you travel from the city of London to the Highlands of Scotland and everything in between. It was also meant to be a case study into the problems that the United Kingdom had when it came to the refugee crisis and how they are special for them. I studied the past relations that the United Kingdom has had with refugees with relations to accepting or rejecting them based on different concepts. I also looked at other countries in comparison with refugee crises to show the differences and similarities. I studied the different political parties and their views towards refugees to show the vast differences across the United Kingdom politically. I analyzed the different factors such as housing and education that will have a major impact upon the resettlement of refugees. The significance of this project relates to the current political changes affecting our country and how ideological differences are furthering the crisis. I hope to educate those who have not done the extensive research into this subject so an understanding of the current refugee crisis can be gained.
