EIN is delighted to announce that the indispensable and ever-popular Best Practice Guide to Asylum and Human Rights Appeals on EIN has been updated and revised for 2022.

As with the previous electronic updates of the publication from 2009 onwards, the revised 2022 Best Practice Guide (or BPG, as it's commonly known) remains freely available to all.

The revised 2022 version has been authored by Mark Henderson and Rowena Moffatt of Doughty Street Chambers and Alison Pickup of Asylum Aid. Rowena Moffatt again takes particular credit for her extensive input, which has been vital in producing the recent updates of the guide.

The BPG deals with the conduct of asylum and human rights appeals. It aims to provide the practical advice and information required to conduct each stage of the appeal according to best practice. The text is structured in roughly chronological order, starting with the Home Office's reasons for refusal letter followed by procedure, evidence, and presentation of the appeal, and concluding with using the determination.

The newly updated 2022 BPG reflects the law as up to 21st December 2021.

Originally authored by Mark Henderson in 2003, the Best Practice Guide to Asylum and Human Rights Appeals is now on its seventh electronic update.

This year's update of the BPG has been funded by EIN. The updates in 2009, 2012 and 2015 were funded by the Nuffield Foundation. The 2018 update was funded by the Legal Education Foundation. The updates in 2018, 2020 and 2021 were supported by the Public Law Project.

The 2022 BPG is comprehensively linked to case law on EIN (making it easy for members of EIN to access the cited cases) and to legislation and resources on EIN and on external websites.

In addition, every paragraph of every chapter remains individually bookmarked for easy reference - the name of each bookmark is the number of the paragraph (use the format, for example, https://www.ein.org.uk/bpg/chapter/3#3.34B to link directly to any paragraph).
