Over the past three decades there have been important policy, case law and advocacy developments in relation to gender and international refugee law. To date however these efforts have largely failed to reconfigure the ways in which the experiences of refugee and asylum seeking women are understood and represented. To fill this gap and increase both academic knowledge and policy impact this project will undertake an ambitious programme of comparative research across nine case study countries generating new insights into the framing of gender issues in claims for protection, situated within a broader understanding of the contemporary politics of asylum.
The proposed research is ambitious, complex and innovative and has high user impact. For the first time, it brings into dialogue three areas of academic endeavour (feminist legal scholarship, post-colonial feminist scholarship, and the theory and practice of intersectionality) to unpack the framing of gender-based asylum claims within, and across, the case study countries opening up new ways of thinking about gender and international protection, the relationship between international protection and international human rights law and about the ways in which different actors come together to inform and shape the direction of policy and practice. The research also has the potential to shape a deeper and more nuanced application of refugee law more generally, particularly in relation to the intersection between the enumerated Convention grounds.
The inferno that engulfed the Grenfell Tower was a personal disaster for the many who lost their friends and families. The subsequent analysis and media frenzy highlighted issues of housing, social justice and racism. In a city celebrated for its diversity and social liberalism but which is polarised by race and class, poor working class and communities of colour appear to have been corralled into the worst housing in a global city in the 21st century.
This report presents an analysis of white working-class communities’ perspectives on belonging, change, identity, and immigration. Recent studies about the white working class focus on national politics, religion, and immigration; this study tells a national story from a grassroots perspective with an eye toward the prospects for cross-racial coalition building between working-class white communities and communities of color.
