Professor Francisca Pérez-Madrid, states that it is necessary to make an in-depth reflection on the legal concept of vulnerability.
For the expert, the comparison of the Guidelines approved by UNHCR to recognize the different cases of religious persecution approved in 2004, present certain inequalities.
Regarding the right to asylum, Francisca Pérez-Madrid comments that what must change is the attitude of the receiving state towards the applicant. "It should not be suspicious, but proactive, and there should be equal standards to avoid arbitrariness in the review of the seriousness of the persecution. The important thing is to assess the vulnerability of these people individually and see what situation they are in."
