Gender Guidelines

The Refugee Women's Resource Project (RWRP) produced a report that examined the extent to which the UK Home Office has incorporated gender considerations into its Asylum Policy Instructions. Findings and recommendations are provided in "‘Lip service’ or implementation?
The Home Office Gender Guidance and women’s asylum claims in the UK" (March 2006).

A copy of the UK's "Gender Issues in the Asylum Claim" is available here.

Links to asylum gender guidelines produced by other governments are provided on the Center for Gender and Refugee Studies web site, along with many other useful information resources.

Another recent report looks more generally at "extent to which Australian refugee law has developed to include claims of sexual and gender-based persecution." "Global Migration and Gender Network, Feb. 2006.
