Refugees and asylum seekers are the subject of major debates both at national and international level. But the debates exclude a gendered perspective that considers the experiences and needs of men and women. This study provides a comprehensive account of the situation of women refugees globally and explains how they differ from men. Looking at causes of refugee flows, international laws and conventions and their application, the policies and legislation of Western governments, and lived experiences of refugees themselves, this book is a much-needed addition to the migration literature.
JANE FREEDMAN is Marie Curie Professor of Politics at the Sorbonne University, France. Her research focuses on gender, immigration and asylum. Previous publications include Gender and Security: Migrant Women in Europe and Immigration and Insecurity in France.
