Description

Description

The aim of this module is to empower COI researchers and asylum case officers to achieve COI quality standards, which is critical to ensuring high-quality information about countries of origin.
This module outlines the role of country-of-origin information (COI) in international protection procedures. It provides an overview of how to develop COI questions from a case and how to select, assess and validate sources and information, along with practical research skills for COI topics. The module also deals with how to best present COI research, draft COI queries and peer review COI products.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  1. Find relevant, accurate and balanced information on countries of origin from reliable sources
  2. Present the information in a transparent and traceable way
  3. Undertake a peer review of a COI product
 
This module is delivered through a blended learning methodology (online and face-to-face). Online learning contains learning activities that assess progress toward the learning outcomes, and face-to-face sessions focus on complex elements that require discussion.
This module will be upgraded as part of the restructuring of the European Asylum Curriculum.
