Asylum Aid* and the National Centre for Social Research** invite you to the launch of their new report
'Through her eyes: enabling women's best evidence at UK asylum appeals'
This innovative study analyses the perceptions and experiences of women in the asylum appeals process, alongside those of judges, legal representatives, and support organisations. “Through her eyes” reveals important lessons which could make the UK asylum appeals system fairer for women.
The study builds upon Asylum Aid's previous work documenting an asylum system that puts women at an acute disadvantage and advocating for change.
Chaired by Professor Eleonore Kofman, co-Director of the Social Policy Research Centre at Middlesex University, this event will start with a presentation of the findings of the new report from authors Jane Kerr (Research Director, NatCen) and Gina Clayton (Legal Researcher, Asylum Aid) followed by a discussion on how to improve the asylum appeals process to ensure the system is fair for women and enables them to give best evidence at their hearing. Speakers include:
• Catriona Jarvis, Judge of the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) (retired)
• Kathryn Cronin, Barrister
• Princess Chineze Onyeukwu, Protection Gap Advocate
• Debora Singer MBE, Asylum Aid.
Following the discussion, you are welcome to stay for light refreshments.
