The Swiss Federal Office for Migration (BFM) has commissioned the ICMPD to undertake a comparative study of asylum procedures in Switzerland, Denmark and United Kingdom regarding claims of particularly Iraqi, Somali and Eritrean asylum seekers.
The study aims to comparatively describe current developments in asylum policies and practices in the selected countries and to relate them to:
• changes in the number of asylum claims submitted by the target group
• changes in the perception of attractiveness of the destination countries: CH, DK, UK
• Comparative analysis of asylum and return policies in CH, DK, UK.
• Statistical analysis on asylum claims of Iraqi, Somali and Eritrean asylum seekers submitted in CH, DK, UK.
