- What is Asylum?
Asylum is the protection granted to those who have left their home countries as a result of having been persecuted or fear that they will be persecuted on account of race, religion, nationality, and/or membership in a particular social group or political opinion.
These five protected grounds of asylum listed above are all relevant in proving having suffered harm or potentially suffered harm from as a result, however there is another ground of asylum called humanitarian asylum.
- What is Humanitarian Asylum?
Humanitarian asylum allows the applicant to still be granted asylum even if cases where the government has proven that country would be safe to reside in and there would be no future persecution toward that specific individual considering the situation has gotten safer. In this case, the individual must prove that they have compelling reasons for no longer wanting to return to and reside in that particular country based upon past persecution that they have endured. They must prove that they may still face some form of harm returning back to his or her home country that is not limited to one of the five protected grounds of asylum, but the severity of the harm must be enough for persecution. In situations like these, courts will determine the harm the individual has faced, economic hardships, and any other struggles or hardships that the individual may face returning to their home country.
