Eileen Kaufman served as an expert witness in two political asylum cases on behalf of Tibetans. Her expertise concerned the status of Tibetans in India and reflected the research she has been engaged in for over a decade. The issue that often arises in these asylum cases is whether the Tibetan, who would clearly face persecution were he/she to be returned to Tibet, was "firmly resettled" in India. In the hearing on August 23, the judge ruled from the bench and granted asylum, finding that the conditions in India do not amount to firm resettlement.
