The UK has a proud history of providing protection to those who need it. Each case is carefully considered on its individual facts and merits in ac-cordance with our international obligations under the Refugee Convention and European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).

Each individual assessment is made against the background of the latest available country of origin information and any relevant caselaw.

Our assessment of the situation in Sudan is set out in the relevant country policy and information notes, which are available on the website.

Where someone establishes a well-founded fear of persecution or serious harm in their country they are normally granted protection and are not expected to return there.
