Asylos is a global network of volunteers working to research country-of-origin information. By leveraging the skills of over 100 volunteer researchers in over 25 countries around the world, we harness diversity to help asylum seekers like S from Rwanda or A from Thailand prove the persecution they have endured and claim their right to safety under international law.

Our work reinforces the rule of law in refugee host countries, from the USA and Canada to Germany or Malaysia. We support asylum lawyers and caseworkers to make sure refugee law is applied and justice is served for the most vulnerable displaced people in the world. Find out more about where we work or hear from lawyers who have used our services around the world.

"I can’t say enough how much I appreciate your project... it seems like you’re working with the best researchers and experts in the field. This information is invaluable." Nimrod Avigal, HIAS Israel

our impact

During the past eight years, we have produced more than 400 research reports and helped thousands of refugees claim their right to protection. Our research reports have been used in at least 20 countries and regularly quoted in court decisions. They have been used by UNHCR to inform UN eligibility guidelines, have been submitted as evidence in the 2018 UK Country Guidance on Afghanistan and have been referenced by the European Asylum Support Office (EASO), as well as several European government agencies and NGOs.
