International, European, and national policies and practices on refugee status determination and settlement/integration have changed over time in response to broader economic, political and social stimuli. Refugee and asylum policy is not simply a response to a recognised need on the part of those fleeing persecution; it is intricately connected to broader international politics, to domestic concerns with migration control, to local racism and xenophobia. The policy on asylums and refugees is currently high on the political agenda in France and Britain, as it is at the European Union level. This chapter sets out the international, European, and national framework for refugee status determination, reception, and settlement. It establishes one of the contexts in which the study of refugee women in Britain and France is situated. The chapter also discusses international law on refugees, gender and the international legal framework, the Hague Programme adopted by the European Council in November 2004, welfare and support for asylum seekers and refugees, detention of asylum seekers and migrants, and integration policy and practice in France and Britain.
