Sweden: Expert legal opinion in the case of X before the Swedish Migration Agency

In January 2016, ICJ provided an expert legal opinion to the applicant’s legal counsel in the case of “X” before the Swedish Migration Agency with a view to assisting them in assessing “X”’s asylum claim.

The case in the context of which this expert legal opinion was submitted concerns a sur place application for refugee status under the Refugee Convention based on a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of the applicant’s membership of a particular social group, namely one defined by his sexual orientation.
