Practical cooperation, exchanging good practices and dialogue on the assessment of country information (COI) as evidence in the judicial review of asylum decisions.

Practical cooperation, exchanging good practices and dialogue on the assessment of country information (COI) as evidence in the judicial review of asylum decisions.

Duration: January 2010 – August 2011

The project’s primary objective was to promote the correct and harmonised implementation of Community legislation and international refugee law through the harmonisation of the appreciation of country information (COI) as evidence and thus asylum decision-making in general. This objective was reached primarily by a yet lacking involvement of appeal/judicial review instances in dialogue and practical cooperation, the identification and dissemination of exemplary practices and awareness-raising about existing judicial criteria and common quality standards.

The project was led by the Hungarian Helsinki Committee and implemented together with its partners: ACCORD / Austrian Red Cross, UNHCR Regional Representation for Central Europe, Refugee Documentation Centre Ireland (RDCI), International Association of Refugee Law Judges, French National Asylum Court (CNDA) and the Czech Judicial Academy.

Two studies were drafted in the framework of the project:

Country Information in Asylum Procedures – Quality as a Legal Requirement in the EU

Structural differences and access to country information (COI) at European courts dealing with asylum

The project was co-funded by the European Commission.
