This book is about the lives of refugee women in Britain and France. Who are they? Where do they come from? What happens to them when they arrive, while they wait for a decision on their claim for asylum, and after the decision, whether positive or negative? The book shows how laws and processes designed to meet the needs of men fleeing political persecution often fail to protect women from persecution in their home countries and fail to meet their needs during and after the decision-making process. It portrays refugee women as resilient, resourceful and potentially active participants in British and French social, political and cultural life. The book exposes the obstacles that make active participation difficult.

margins of the economic and social processes of slave societies. 4 An analysis of property records reveals the social agency of white women within the Barbadian property market, to an extent not previously recognised or understood.

women’s temperance unions were expected to live up to rigorous standards of organisational and administrative skill, and key members of the BWTASCU came to temperance reform with impressive human capital gained through a lifetime of public service in their local communities. In sum, female temperance reform should be viewed as a fundamental realm of women’s active participation in middle-class identity construction rather than simply as a religiously inspired movement bogged down in a conservative understanding of women’s social role.

art with so-called active participation against a perceived machinisation and stereotyping of participation. Second, it might imply that the aim of participatory performances is to enable a consensual and predefined outcome, in the shape of a desired effect of the artistic narrative. However, as we have seen through the accounts of performance art projects that I have described so far, participants interact with each other and on their own according to their own needs, desires and translation of the narrative of each performance. In this process, artists and

/or party organisations. The analysis will allow us to better understand: (a) the survival of “traditional” models of party organisation that rely on people's active participation in the political process; and (b) whether, and how, parties can shape views and identities, and what they gain from doing so. This chapter will now proceed as follows. In the next section we offer a discussion of what party members did within and for the League, which includes representing the party in the institutions and getting involved in externally and internally
