Can we do better?
Keywords:refugees, Canadian refugee system, religion-based refugee claims
This paper examines the use of research on religious freedom to assist in adjudicating religion-based claims within the Canadian refugee determination system. The Canadian Immigration and Refugee Board compiles National Documentation Packages for countries from which refugee claimants have come. These include a section on religion. This paper assesses the types of reports included in the National Documentation Packages and identifies reports that could be included to enhance them.
