Decision making

Sarah Jane Savage, UNHCR and Steve Symonds, Amnesty International

Among the key principles suggested for endorsement at this summit is: “Improved decision-making, so protection is granted to all who need it.” But what is the current quality of decision-making, and in what way does this differ from a standard that would ensure protection is granted to all who need it? The workshop will offer some thoughts on this, and provide an opportunity for participants to discuss and suggest what are the key areas for improvement in decision-making and how these may be achieved.
Key questions the workshop will consider
• What do we mean by quality of asylum decision-making?
• How has decision-making quality changed over the past decade?
• What are the (max three) most significant problems or failings concerning decision-making?
• What are the (max three) most important policy or other steps that should be taken to improve decision-making?
• How might implementation of these steps be achieved?
• Are there any down-sides which might arise if these were implemented?
