Center for Gender & Refugee Studies (United States Case Law)

Published: 11 Oct 2016


The Center for Gender & Refugee Studies (CGRS) database contains information on over 7,000 asylum cases from 1996 onwards, at all levels of adjudication across the United States. Asylum seekers in most of these cases are women, children, or LGBT refugees. Case records include unpublished Immigration Judge or Board of Immigration Appeals decisions and most offer a summary of the decision provided by the applicant’s attorney. Given the absence of official reporting on asylum cases at most stages of adjudication, the information provided by the CGRS database offers a unique source of information for those representing asylum seekers.
