Humanitas: Our Journal
HUMANITAS is an open, international journal which presents scholarship, polemical and creative writing in dialogue. Since its first appearance in the autumn of 1999 it has sought to provide a home for striking new thought and creative work drawn from across Europe, Asia, Africa and America. Its pages have featured articles of all kinds, from the historical and theological to the literary and cultural. It is now taken by academic libraries and private subscribers across the world.

2009 Asylum in Britain: A Question of Conscience by Anthony Harvey
The indignities and obstructions that are placed in the way of asylum seekers pursuing their claims for asylum are such as to arouse in many people indignation and protest. But however much one may be disturbed by their sufferings, it is important to take account of the legal and political realities with which government and administration have to contend. This book examines the successive stages of the asylum process, reviewing the efforts government has made to meet its obligations and conform with acceptable standards of humane treatment. It argues that even when all these factors are taken into account the balance of public policy has come down too heavily on the side of exclusion and restriction, with the result that much of the system and its administration amounts to an affront to any well-informed conscience.
