Asylum Research Centre Foundation

Asylum Research Centre (ARC) Foundation believes in a refugee status determination procedure that takes into account quality country of origin information (COI). Our aim is to improve standards in COI production and usage, fill COI gaps, and thus contribute, together with our project partners and collaborators, to better decision making on asylum claims in the UK and internationally. We provide a case-specific COI service that legal representatives supporting stateless individuals can access (either via legal aid or privately funded) and we welcome commissions in relation to thematic/country-specific COI reports or COI training on statelessness. We provide a free bi-monthly COI update that informs subscribers of UK Country Guidance case law, UK Home Office publications and developments in refugee producing countries (focusing on those which generate the most asylum seekers in the UK).
