Publication on ‘Gender in Refugee Law’

Gender in Refugee Law: From the Margins to the Centre  investigates the current status of gender in refugee law. It examines gender-related persecution claims of both women and men, including those based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

The volume includes contributions from scholars and members of the advocacy community (including Debora Singer, Asylum Aid) that allow the book to examine conceptual and doctrinal themes arising at the intersection of gender and refugee law, and specific case studies across major Western refugee-receiving nations. The book will be of great interest and value to researchers and students of asylum and immigration law, international politics, and gender studies.

The book is edited by Efrat Arbel, Catherine Dauvergne & Jenni Millbank and was published by Routledge in 2014.
