CASE News:
New report estimating costs and benefits of two potential ways of extending support to all victims of domestic abuse regardless of migration status

Published/Broadcast 21 December 2022

Bert Provan and Kath Scanlon with colleagues in LSE London, collaborated with the University of Oxford's Migration Observatory, to author a new report The costs and benefits of helping migrant survivors of domestic abuse with No Recourse to Public Funds. This research provides the technical underpinning to the report that the Domestic Abuse Commissioner laid before Parliament in December 2022.  LSE was asked by the Commissioner to provide a detailed technical analysis to underpin her response.  

In this new blog post Kath Scanlon, Distinguished Policy Fellow at LSE London and CASE Associate, illustrates the research which estimates the costs and benefits of two potential ways of extending support to all victims of domestic abuse regardless of migration status.
