AsyLex work in the Swiss asylum context demonstrated that international human rights mechanisms can serve as an effective supplementary procedure in safeguarding the rights of asylum seekers when their experienced human rights violations have not been adequately addressed in the national procedure. Our research, along with academic findings, highlights a global underutilization of international human rights mechanisms in asylum cases. This underscores substantial untapped potential to strengthen justice for asylum seekers and refugees. AsyLex Global is dedicated to increasing awareness and promoting the utilization of these mechanisms on a global scale. This effort aims to guarantee access to justice up until the international level for refugees and asylum seekers.
