Abstract

Taking the management of asylum seekers in the UK as a case study, the article seeks to uncover the means and mechanisms of this struggle for allegiance among those actors who have experienced increasing responsibilities over the past three decades. Drawing upon 37 interviews across four sites at which asylum sector intermediaries have significant and increasing discretion over asylum seekers' experiences, the findings demonstrate the importance of institutionalised timing and spacing for the determination of their volitional conduct.
