  • Abstract

    This is a mixed-method empirical study of the impact of human rights treaties on asylum jurisprudence and practice in the United Kingdom from 1991 to 2012. It codes references to core human rights treaties in published decisions by U.K. courts and administrative tribunals according to whether the treaty helped or did not help the asylum applicant obtain protection from persecution. It also codes the responses of 51 U.K. refugee lawyers who were interviewed about the effectiveness of human rights treaties in U.K. asylum law.
