Assessment of Credibility by Judges in Asylum Cases in the EU

Edited by: Carolus Grutters, Sebastiaan de Groot, Elspeth Guild

This book reports on the findings of an April 2013 seminar on 'Judicial Scrutiny and Credibility Assessment in Asylum Procedures,' organized by the Center for Migration Law (CMR) of Radboud University Nijmegen and the International Association of Refugee Law Judges (IARLJ). Further, this seminar was co-sponsored by the EU Jean Monnet Program and hosted by Radboud University Nijmegen. Along with the reflections of experts on credibility assessment, the book contains the full text of the Credo document: Assessment of Credibility in Refugee and Subsidiary Protection Claims under the EU Qualification Directive: Judicial Criteria and Standards. This document was prepared for the IARLJ in its role as a partner in the 'Credo Project.' The book contributes to the dissemination of knowledge on the assessment of credibility in asylum cases among judges and, in particular, will assist in decreasing the risk of denying protection of those who are in need of protection.
