Thematic Focus: Protection-related Items

"Credibility Assessment in Asylum Procedures" is a newly available training manual produced by the Hungarian Helsinki Committee. It offers "a framework for developing knowledge, skills and attitude through multidisciplinary learning, which can help asylum professionals to reduce the possibility of errors, reach more objective and fair credibility findings, as well as to apply a more structured approach to credibility assessment."  This is the first of two volumes: Anticipated next year, volume 2 "will include specific chapters on language and interpretation; shame, stigma and denial; gender; sexual orientation and gender identity; and children."
