Asylum means security and protection in both physical and legal manners, afforded by such a place. In 1951, the United Nation passed a resolution in favour of refugees to support them as well as to settle them. The policy was designed to settle the refugees and prevent sending them back to their home countries where they will face torture, false imprisonment or even death on the basis of their race, religion, nationality or political views.
The refugees are advised to follow the rules and regulations of the country where they are applying for asylum and prove they have a genuine threat.
Since UK is one of the members of European countries and therefore follows European Convention of Human Rights; all asylum applications are considered under the Convention as well as Human Rights.
The successful applicants will be given the permission to remain in the UK but the unsuccessful applicants may be removed from the UK. Refugees are granted equal rights and opportunities as British Citizens. Furthermore, they qualify for naturalisation after completing 5 years of continuous residence in the UK.
