Data and Categorization in Asylum Decision-making
In asylum decision-making, legal authorities rely on the criterion “credibility” as a measure for determining whether an individual has a legitimate asylum claim. Data and data-driven technologies are increasingly becoming an institutionalized measure to inform credibility in bureaucratic decision-making, but little research documents the structured and systematic ways that credibility is entering into these processes. This talk will focus on how data and categorization from asylum adjudications stem from a complex and cooperative decision-making process and how data needs to be prepared for the asylum decision-making processes through various steps of interpretation by different asylum authorities.
