The European Asylum Support Office (EASO) has published a Country of Origin Information report on Pakistan.
The numbers of Pakistani asylum seekers have increased in recent years with 15,000 applicants in the EU in the first six months of 2015. The report is intended as a reference document and resource for preparing asylum interviews and asylum decision making and provides general country background information as well as more detailed information on specific topics relevant for determining asylum claims from Pakistani nationals, such as the treatment of ethnic, religious and sexual minorities.
