Asylum Aid report: ‘I feel like as a woman I’m not welcome’

Asylum Aid’s new research report ‘I feel like as a woman I’m not welcome’ was published in January 2012.

The report combines legal and qualitative research to test the Government against its promises to establish a gender-sensitive asylum system. Drawing on interviews with asylum-seeking women and refugees across the UK, the report also brings together the jurisprudence and policies most relevant to those with gender-based asylum claims in a single document for the first time. In so doing, it maps the work still ahead in order for the Government to honour its commitments.
