Article from UK’s “Asylum Aid” Quarterly report: The Director’s Note

Minister Damian Green has revealed plans to reform the UK’s asylum system, specifically regarding the “culture of disbelief.” Frequently, claims of asylum are denied because the interviewers question the applicant’s credibility, or believe they are outright lying about the treatment they received in their country of origin. This objectivity and bias leads to many poor decisions, reports author Maurice Wren. Asylum Aid, the UK-based asylum assistance organization, is committed to providing quality legal advice to vulnerable asylum-seekers, helping them overcome bureaucratic hurdles and the “culture of disbelief.” Wren calls on the Home Office to show leadership in this matter.
