Still Human Still Here
ARC ran a series of free training seminars in May 2012 on behalf of the Still Human Still Here Coalition on 'How to challenge the conclusions reached in the Home Office's Operational Guidance Notes (OGNs) using Country of Origin Information (COI)’. The seminars were held across the UK for legal representatives and those providing legal assistance to asylum seekers and delivered the Coalition’s key findings from its commentaries on the DRC, Occupied Palestinian Territories and Iraq OGNs, as well as providing techniques for conducting COI research and useful sources.
In September 2011 ARC delivered training on behalf of a joint Still Human Still Here Coalition and Asylum Aid initiative. ARC ran a series of 1 hour free seminars throughout the UK for legal representatives on 'How to Challenge the Conclusions Reached in the Home Office's OGNs Using Country of Origin Information'.
