E 158 Walking in Another's Shoes: Ethical Perspectives on the Experience of Those Seeking Asylum (2010)

In February 2009, the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham presented a motion on the issue of asylum to the Church of England's General Synod which considered the right to work; amnesty for 'legacy cases'; the detention of children; the availability of legal services; and destitution.

Drawing on theological themes of hospitality, help, health and hope this booklet goes beyond the question 'How can we help?' and asks, 'What can we learn from the person seeking sanctuary?'
