I have been an expert witness in eighteen political asylum cases for clients from various post-Soviet states in the Baltic and Central Asian regions, including Ukraine, Estonia, Latvia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan. I have written affidavits summarizing country condition and provided oral testimony regarding those circumstances. For further information see my CV and/or send me an email: michele.commercio@uvm.edu.
