For over a decade, Refugee Law Laboratory Director Sean Rehaag has published yearly data on outcomes in Canada’s refugee determination system. This data has frequently been used by refugee lawyers, advocates, judges, administrators, policymakers and the media. It has informed litigation and law reform strategies, prompted policy changes, and encouraged evidence-informed public debates about refugee issues.
One of the aims of the Refugee Law Laboratory is to enhance transparency in Canadian refugee adjudication by publishing data on all levels of the refugee determination system in formats that are easy to understand and to integrate into the work of other researchers and developers.
