UNHCR presents Refworld 2013 at www.refworld.org. The website has undergone significant changes with a view to enhancing the overall user experience, based on a user-survey conducted in 2012 as well as feedback received from internal and external users over the years.
The Executive Council of the IARLJ is investigating the possibilities for holding the next World Conference. The tentative time for this event is end of May 2014.
As soon as any news is available it will be posted on the website and an announcement will be sent to members and those who have shown interest.
Over the past year, after consultation and much assistance from some 35 judges from 22 European countries and the partners in the project, former IARLJ President Allan Mackey and John Barnes, the author of the IARLJ European asylum training Manual (both former UK Senior Immigration Judges) have now completed this paper. The preparation and consultation work was partly funded by the European Refugee Fund (ERF) for the European Chapter’s involvement in the “Credo project”. The other partners in ”Credo” were: the lead partner, Hungarian Helsinki Committee (Budapest) and the UNHCR (Brussels).
