New RSD Report

Asylum Access Ecuador and the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) have released a new report entitled Refugee Status Determination in Latin America: Regional Challenges and Opportunities - The National Systems in Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Mexico.  Here is part of the description:
The report "provides a review of national frameworks centering attention on due process, access to information, appeals mechanisms and abbreviated RSD procedures. The study of experiences and national legislations in these countries creates an opportunity to discuss best practices and challenges in national systems that could benefit a regional dialogue. The recommendations included in the report focus on guaranteeing protection for refugees and due process, while encouraging discussions over regional standards and including regional and international commitments in national legal instruments and practices."

A Spanish-language version is also available.
