Practical guide: Evidence assessment

Select Language
Asylum processes

This guide is designed in a similar way to the Practical guide: Personal interview. It is intended to provide support for the daily work of case officers and addresses the challenging tasks related to evidence assessment: gathering information, credibility assessment, risk assessment. A structured approach to evidence assessment, following the three steps above, is presented in checklists and brief guidance on every entry of the checklist. The guide further offers legal references, case law and a dedicated space for possible variations of national practice. The guide also encloses a template, which can be used to apply the structured-evidence assessment method on individual cases.
