An add-on to our series of ‘Breaking the Chains‘ legal seminars centred around representing child and young asylum seekers.

David Neale, Legal Researcher at Garden Court Chambers, will argue that the old country guidance case of DM is not an accurate reflection of the current position, and that many Albanians who fear domestic violence at the hands of their families will not be able to avail themselves of a sufficiency of state protection. This includes some boys and young men. David will also be exploring the vulnerability of some domestic violence survivors to trafficking/exploitation on return, even where they have not been trafficked in the past.

This seminar will be useful to lawyers representing Albanian nationals and in assessing merits in Albanian asylum claims, including those who are challenging certification decisions by Judicial Review.
