Asylum Research Centre (ARC), formerly Asylum Research Consultancy, was set up by Liz Williams and Stephanie Huber in 2010. Between October 2016 and July 2022 ARC Foundation was incorporated as a charitable incorporated organisation. Our aim is to raise standards in the production and use of COI and the refugee status determination process as a whole, ultimately ensuring that those in need of protection are recognised as such.

Announcement: ARC Foundation winding down and transferring key projects to Asylos
ARC Foundation’s Board of Trustees have agreed that ARC Foundation’s charitable purpose can best be realised if its cooperation with Asylos be increased. To this end Asylos will take forward key projects that have up to now been run by ARC Foundation or were jointly delivered by both organisations. Consequently, ARC Foundation will wind up its activities by March 2022 and dissolve as a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) by July 2022. To get in touch with Asylos’ new Programme Manager email Emily Wilbourn and Fatima Ali, and to find out more about the transfer visit here.
ARC will continue to operate as a consultancy, offering research, project management and training services. For further information contact Stephanie Huber.
