New Report from Freedom From Torture on Asylum Decision Making

The research, grounded in the perspectives of survivors of torture themselves, looks in depth at caseworker practice in the asylum interview and explores the implications of poor practice for survivors and for the quality of asylum decisions. It comprises a review of 30 case files of survivors of torture interviewed by the Home Office in 2017 or 2018 and a series of focus groups and interviews involving 25 torture survivors who attended an asylum interview between 2017 and 2019.

The report can be found in the Resources Section of the Jubilee+ Refugee Network website here.
