The plight of Kurdish refugees and asylum seekers in the United Kingdom is highlighted in this paper, focussing especially on those whose asylum applications have been refused by the Home Office. Possible solutions are suggested that satisfy the asylum seekers themselves, the UK Home Office, and the Kurdistan Region and Iraq – their home country. These include the way in which the Kurdistan Region and Iraq can benefit from the presence of asylum seekers while they are in the UK and how it could invest in them on their return. Although this paper concentrates on the Kurdish diaspora in the UK, it applies, too, to the wider Kurdish diaspora in Europe and elsewhere in the western world. Also addressed in this article are some of the ongoing issues that affect the Kurdish community, and have the direct consequence of supressing them and preventing them from realising their future potential. Equally, a continuation of these problems without resolution will affect future generations and their loyalty to the home country. Resolving these troubles would, without doubt, be considered an achievement both for the region and the Iraqi government. For this study, the researcher has adopted a qualitative method of naturalistic observation through living in the UK and engagement as an activist among the Kurdish community in London for many years.
