In March 2019, the European Asylum Support Office released a report on Iraq, specifically on the targeting of individuals.

Although this report was published more than six months ago, it was referenced just this week by an immigration judge in the First-tier Tribunal, who said he intended to use it as part of his judgment.

In June 2019, the Home Office updated its internal guidance on conducting asylum (substantive interviews).

The guidance is a really useful document to read. Although sadly Home Office practice currently falls far short of what is supposed to happen on paper (see our news blog for more on this), it’s helpful for people to know what should and shouldn’t be happening in their interviews. When you know what is meant to be done, it is easier to challenge (either at the time, or subsequently) behaviour that goes against the guidance.
