No5 Chambers’ S Chelvan presents at conference on credibility in asylum claims
S Chelvan of No5 Chambers has presented his DSSH (Difference, Stigma, Shame and Harm) model at a conference held in Madrid on how to assess credibility in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) asylum claims.
More than 100 delegates from the legal and NGO sector, from Europe, Egypt, Iran, Hong Kong and South Korea, assembled in Madrid from 5–7 May. They shared experience and knowledge from a multi-disciplinary approach, hearing from specialists involved in trauma, memory and law.
The conference was organised by the ELENA network in conjunction with the European Council for Refugees and Exiles (ECRE) and the Hungarian Helsinki Committee. It is part of a wider project with UNHCR and Asylum Aid called the CREDO 2 project.
