Abstract

Precarious Lives: Forced Labour, Exploitation and Asylum offers a groundbreaking examination of the forced labour experienced by migrants and asylum seekers seeking refuge in the United Kingdom. Hannah Lewis, Peter Dwyer, Stuart Hodkinson and Louise Waite explore the ‘hyper-precarity trap’ that binds their interviewees to exploitative, insecure and often hidden working conditions. Tribeni Gurung argues that this fascinating and comprehensible read not only powerfully highlights flaws in the UK immigration system, but also suggests ways to improve these structures.
