Country of origin reports
Our country experts research and write country analysis reports that outline the situation in the asylum seekers' countries of origin.
These reports are produced using independently sourced information that helps make asylum procedures fairer. Priority areas and topics are reviewed regularly based on developments in the countries of origin and the number of asylum applications, changes in asylum policy and demand for information from various actors. Country experts of the Swiss Refugee Council produce analysis reports at the request of legal advice centres, lawyers and courts on issues such as security, health care and other specific aspects related to the asylum seekers' countries of origin.
The country experts work independently and rely on an extensive network of carefully selected contacts in the countries of origin.
To keep up-to-date on the current situation and provide the latest information to all actors involved, our experts regularly visit the main countries of origin.
