Gender, persecution and the concept of politics in the asylum determination process

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this short article I argue that the particular difficulties facing many women as asylum seekers stem not from the absence of ‘gender’ in the Refugee Convention’s grounds but rather from the failure of decision makers to acknowledge and respond to the gendering of politics and of women’s relationship to the state when applying that definition to individual cases.
