An examination of how those representing asylum seekers can ensure that gender-related aspects of women's experiences of persecution are taken into account and appropriately reflected in the determination process. The text aims to ensure that all aspects of women's asylum claims are fully considered, providing a comprehensive understanding of the concepts of gender persecution, as well as a gendered framework for the interpretation of key elements of the 1951 Refugee Convention. The extent to which gender of the applicant has implications for the procedural and substantive consideration of the claim is also highlighted.;Detailed information is provided on the implications of gender in asylum law, policy and practice in the UK, with comparative case law from other countries, including Canada, the USA and Australia. The book also contains annexes which include the gender guidelines produced in the UK and elsewhere and details of additional sources of information and support on gender-related issues.
