Gender Related Harms in Forced Migration: A Comparative International Study

Start year:

This project interrogates how refugee law has been transformed by gender. We explore this key development by addressing three axes of inquiry: * Analysis of the impact of gender on the global development of refugee jurisprudence; * Consideration of how gender exposes the relationship between refugee law, human rights law and migration law (including human trafficking, smuggling and securitization); * Exploration throughout of the thematic and conceptual evolution of 'gendered identity'. Our claim is that the uncoordinated national practice of refugee law has created a dynamic inter-relation of legal categories and key concepts which have shaped, and in turn been reshaped, by the explicit articulation of gender-related claims.
