Description

Human Rights Consortium (Refugee Law Initiative)

International Refugee Law seminar series: International Standards and National Application: Asylum Decision Making in the United Kingdom, Strasbourg and Luxembourg

Nicholas Blake was called to the Bar in 1974 and practised extensively in the field of immigration asylum free movement and human rights law until he was appointed to the High Court Bench in 2007. Since February 20102 he has been appointed President of the Upper Tribunal Immigration and Asylum Chamber that determines appeals from decisions of the First tier.

This seminar will examine the inter-relationship between the common law interpretation of the Refugee Convention 1951 and the case law from the European Courts on Article 3 ECHR and EU Qualification Directive 2004. It will focus on the practical aspects of asylum determination: credibility assessment, information on country of origin, risks from non state actors, sufficiency of protection and then assessment problems created by intense but short lived periods of violence. It will consider the UK system of country guidance, the challenges it faces and how it links to the work of the international courts.
