Evidence Assessment in Refugee Law with Stories and Arguments

F.J. Bex, V.M. Bex-Reimert


In this article, we aim to analyse whether a systematic meth- od for reasoning with evidence in legal cases – the hybrid theory of stories and arguments – can be ap- plied to a novel legal domain, name- ly European asylum law. This analy- sis serves as a case study for testing the applicability of the hybrid theory outside of the context of criminal law. Furthermore, the analysis will provide insights on how the hybrid theory can be used to improve the normative framework for evidence assessment in asylum cases.
