Professor Kate Evans submitted an amici curiae brief on behalf of eight leading international refugee law scholars across five countries to the Board of Immigration Appeals. The brief addressed the proper interpretation of one of the disqualifying grounds in U.S. asylum law and is derived from Professor Evans' research available here. The case is on remand following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Negusie v. Holder with instructions to the immigration agency to undertake a more considered interpretation of the relevant provision in U.S. law. This brief was one of three coordinated responses to the Supreme Court's call.
