The aim of this module is to outline the knowledge, skills and attributes needed to apply the EUAA’s structured method of evidence assessment when assessing an application for international protection so that the risk of subjectivity in individual cases is reduced.
This module explores how the material facts of a case are established through gathering, examining and comparing available pieces of evidence. It outlines the theoretical aspects and the relevant legislation from a practical perspective and applies the evidence assessment methodology that builds around the three different steps of information gathering, credibility assessment and risk assessment.
