Good Practice Together
This month we share new courses, a cohesive resource for the Afghan Crisis, focus group invite, and a job opportunity.

Afghanistan Response
All resources in one place
We have set up a webpage, compiling all previously shared resources relating to the Afghan Crisis. We’ve been adding new resources to this page, and will continue to do so. Email us if there’s anything you’d like to add.
Focus Group & Resource - Afghanistan Country of Origin Information (COI)
The latest Afghanistan COI Repository presents updated country research and is available on Asylos’ website. If you have used this report as evidence, we’d like to invite you to a 1-hour focus group.
