Asylum Aid campaign update: ‘Close the Protection Gap’

The Protection Gap campaign is based on the idea that women seeking asylum should have the same rights as other women.

When women seeking asylum from human rights abuses come to the UK for protection, we must offer them a gender-sensitive procedure worthy of our reputation as a global leader on women’s rights. The five campaign demands reflect the minimum standards that the Foreign Office is promoting around the world for women in situations of conflict. Here in the UK, however, the Home Office falls short of those standards.

Asylum Aid published a briefing on this subject in December 2014.
