First Aid for Asylum Seekers

This material was prepared in association with GEA2000. It is NOT legal advice. It is provided for general information only.
You should make every effort to speak directly with a lawyer BEFORE taking any action.

The asylum systems in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand are complicated, involve significant amounts of administrative hurdles, and are often adversarial. Though the standard for asylum is the more or less the same on paper, there are significant differences in the way countries apply the law, the assistance they provide to asylum seekers, and the rates at which different countries recognize asylum seekers from respective countries of asylum. What all this means is that asylum seekers fleeing the same country for the same reasons can have vastly different experiences depending on where they go, how they get there, and the extent to which they can prove their case. These are the essential things for you to consider, and this material is organized around these issues.
