Next to collecting data via court ethnographies and interviews in various EU countries, ASYFAIR also conducts an online survey with various professional actors in asylum adjudication to get a broad overview of some of the key foci of the study, such as helpful practices and procedures in asylum hearings, and the actors’ views of asylum adjudication within the Common European Asylum System (CEAS).
The survey should not take longer than 10min to complete.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE INFORMATION I GIVE?
The survey collects anonymous data, which – in conjunction with ethnographic, quantitative and interview data – will be used to write academic research that will be published in academic journals and discussed at academic conferences. In addition, as the study aims to improve asylum adjudication, we may use anonymised data to present to policy makers, the public and the media.
We may make a fully anonymised version of the data available for reuse in future research projects via a secure data archive. This data will be anonymised and will not include any information that could identify you to others. The anonymised research information on this secure archive will be kept for ten years because that is what is required by the University of Exeter. After this time it will be securely disposed of.
ARE THERE ANY RISKS?
There are no risks in taking part in the survey, as the data is collected anonymously. The team is very happy to discuss any concerns you may have concerning the survey. Please contact us.
ARE THERE ANY BENEFITS FROM TAKING PART?
There are no direct short-term benefits to you for taking part in this research. However this study may help improve the life of asylum seekers by drawing attention to what can be improved about the system of asylum appeals.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY
We do not collect names or email addresses of survey respondents, and all responses collected in the survey remain anonymous. Should respondents mention personal details in their responses, these will be fully anonymised. This is to ensure that there will be no information in our published research or in the data available to other researchers in the future that would allow third parties to identify respondents.
We will only use data for carrying out research in the public interest, in accordance with current Data Protection legislation. We will not share personal data with anyone outside the ASYFAIR research team, and we will not transfer personal data to a country outside of the European Economic Area (and the UK) unless that country ensures an adequate level of protection. All collected data, data analysis and data storage are subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679.
If you have any concerns about data protection, please contact the data protection officer at the University of Exeter (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Further information on data protection is available here.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND?
As we do not collect names, email addresses or personal data in the online survey, we may not be able to remove your responses from the overall data sample.
