Abstract

In Asylum Discord: Disparities in Persecution Assessments, I reviewed approximately 900 asylum cases issued by federal appellate courts from 1996 through 2013. From this data set, I analyzed whether courts consistently treat certain types of harm as persecutory. The results demonstrated divergences in most of the segmented categories, from a single instance of abuse and detention to prolonged psychological suffering. The data revealed that asylum applicants’ ability to avoid deportation may depend on the appellate court jurisdiction they happen to fall under or even the particular judges within a given circuit that happen to be assigned to their case.

This Article Supplement contains the data I compiled and assessed to reach my findings, including judge-specific information.
