I feel like as a woman
Asylum Aid's new research report"I feel like as a woman I'm not welcome": A gender analysis of UK asylum law, policy and practice
combines legal and qualitative research in a detailed gender analysis of the UK asylum system. You can download the full report, or the Executive Summary.
Last year, the Immigration Minister and Deputy Prime Minister committed the Coalition Government to creating an asylum system sensitive to the needs of women and girls, and to those with gender-based asylum claims.
This research draws on interviews with asylum-seeking women and their advocates across the UK, and detailed analysis of the asylum jurisprudence and policies most relevant to women, to test the Government against these promises.
