Chapter 17 - Challenging the First-tier Tribunal and Procedures in the Upper Tribunal
This is a chapter from the Bloomsbury Professional book Asylum Law and Practice, 2nd Edition, which is a detailed exposition of the law relating to international protection. Written by two leading authorities on refugee law, this book brings together in one place all relevant aspects of asylum law and practice in the United Kingdom. The title is comprehensive enough to serve as a reliable source of information and analysis to all practitioners. Its depth, thoroughness, and clarity make it a compulsory purchase for all practitioners wanting to put forward well-supported arguments to the Home Office, Courts and Tribunals.
The book focuses on UK practice and procedure, but in addressing the refugee definition deals with case law from other jurisdictions, such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the USA. It addresses all aspects of claiming asylum and the processing of protection claims, from the New Asylum Model to appeals in the Upper Tribunal, humanitarian protection, third country cases and the treatment of asylum seekers. This edition features the Qualification Directive and other elements of the Common European Asylum System; gives a detailed analysis of appeals in the Immigration and Asylum Chambers of the Upper Tribunal and considers refugee issues in detail.
