discrimination (equality), and access to high quality mental health
services (entitlement).4 These principles are enshrined in international law in
treaties and declarations that directly apply to the rights of persons with mental
illness. In 1991, the United Nations adopted Principles for the Protection of Persons
with Mental Illness and for the Improvement of MentalHealthCare (the MI
Principles).5 The MI Principles include a preference for community care; the right

questions (such as, for example, the issue of local air quality) were the
key elements of this EC call. The call was widely publicized by the network and a
total of twenty-seven eligible applications were received, indicating the strength
and diversity of the science shop movement, with four projects eventually being
funded. These dealt with health effects of noise from wind turbines; cycling and
air pollution; optimizing public transport for the elderly; and mentalhealthcare
for immigrant communities. Even where these applications were unsuccessful,

In 2004, the government released a five-year plan, Delivering Race
Equality in MentalHealthCare. This plan mentions refugees and asylum
seekers only very briefly. In November 2000, the DoH had published an
information booklet for NHS staff dealing with asylum seekers and refugees,
entitled Meeting the Health Needs of Refugees and Asylum Seekers in the UK:An
Information and Resource Pack for Health Workers (Burnett and Fassil 2000).The

Since the 1990s, a number of medical practitioners and others involved
in mentalhealthcare have written on recovery. In this vast literature,
we often encounter a distinction between ‘recovery’ and ‘rehabilitation’.
Recovery is usually defined as an approach by which people suffering
from mental illness are offered various empowerment techniques in

to measure progress. The amount of financial assistance and technical expertise deployed for each human rights area concerned depended on the severity
of the rights violations and, above all, on the political weight and visibility
acquired by the respective policy sector.
The broad spectrum of social issues was at the heart of the EU human rights
conditionality as applied in Romania. Amongst the social policy sectors

lesbians and a way in which to challenge the whole structure around models of
behaviour. The Front had participants who had been both providers and clients
of mentalhealthcare provision. The Front’s Anti-Psychiatry Workshop aimed its
campaigns at the heart of the professional world of the established medical elite.

Unlike CADA, the CPH which accommodate those with refugee status
are not legally tasked with a medico-legal function. However, a number of
them help occupants who require medical attention. For instance, the CPH
run by the Forum Réfugiés in Lyon collaborates with hospitals, GPs and
mother and baby protection teams in the Lyon region. It also runs mental
health clinics, on its premises, offering CPH occupants a diagnostic and
referral service (ibid.).
Apart from medical services available in many CADA and some CPH,
