Recent publication by Gábor Gyulai

I am pleased to share with you my recent publication “Country Information in Asylum Procedures – Quality as a Legal Requirement in the EU”. This study, as the first such trans-national initiative, aims to draw a complex picture of how substantive quality standards of researching and assessing COI appear in the form of legal requirements in the EU, either as binding legal provisions or guiding judicial practice. The report identifies “good legislative practices” concerning COI in the 27 member states and presents what the EU asylum directives require in this respect; in addition it refers to 140 relevant judgments from several EU countries. As such, it aims to provide a useful tool and a set of concrete examples for policy- and law-makers, advocates, judges and trainers active in this field.  

The French and Spanish translation of the report’s Executive Summary are availalbe through the hyperlinks.
