Will changes to immigration rules work?

Home Office’s plans to change family immigration rules and application of Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights “are much wider than initially thought,” Adam Wagner, editor of the UK Human Rights Blog has said.

In an article titled “Article 8 and a half – wider than thought, but will it work?” he argues that “The plan is not to simply ask Parliament to approve a declaration of intent on Article 8 as some suspected, but rather to ask Parliament to approve amended Immigration Rules which will set out an extensive, codified definition of the Article 8 balancing factors, in order to: unify consideration under the rules and Article 8, by defining the basis on which a person can enter or remain in the UK on the basis of their family or private life.”
