Afghanistan country information repository

Asylos, ARC Foundation and Clifford Chance have put together a country information package to help support Afghan asylum claims. It is a collection of media, United Nations and NGO reports on all sorts of human rights issues, from the application of Sharia law to attacks on disability activists. It is also bang up to date, with a new edition every Thursday for the time being. 

The document is not something to throw into an asylum case in its entirety. Asylum seekers and their lawyers should go through it to pick out relevant evidence and submit that as part of the claim. Anyone who has done so already and has feedback is being invited to join a one-hour focus group. To take part, or suggest material for inclusion, email JulieM@refugee-action.org.uk.

The Free Movement blog was founded in 2007 by Colin Yeo, a barrister at Garden Court Chambers specialising in immigration law. The blog provides updates and commentary on immigration and asylum law by a variety of authors.
