Abstract

Digital tools have been increasingly used by national authorities in asylum proceedings, raising concerns about the adverse effects on access to the justice
system, the quality of the refugee status determination, digital literacy, financial resources, and broader issues related to data protection and privacy rights. This report discusses findings from 916 appeals at the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) in the United Kingdom between 2007-2022 that mentioned one or more of 16 social media platforms.
