Gilberto Algar-Faria appointed to new role by the Fahamu Refugee Programme

Gilberto Algar-Faria  has been appointed by the  Fahamu Refugee Programme  as a Country of Origin Information Expert for both Sri Lanka and North Korea.

The Programme provides resources for legal aid practitioners all over the world who are helping refugees find substantive protection. Country of Origin Information Experts act as an information source to provide ‘objective’ information on the conditions that led a refugee to flee his/her country. It is increasingly difficult to win a refugee case without an ‘expert’ comment on the plausibility of a case in the light of conditions in the particular country of origin.
