Seeking Asylum. Women's Experiences of Home Office Decision Making, Destitution and Mental Health Issue

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

This report was composed by a network of
asylum seeker-led NGOs in the West Midlands,
in collaboration with Refugee Rights Europe
and TRP Solicitors. The report was originally
written as a contribution to the United Nations
CEDAW Committee, during its reporting and
monitoring process of the United Kingdom’s fulfillment of the Convention on the
Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination
Against Women (CEDAW). The aim of our
CEDAW shadow report was to ensure the
representation of the voices of women who
may not be visible to the bureaucrats who
write the official CEDAW State party report.
In February 2019, we released a longer, and
lightly edited, version of the same report, to
ensure an even wider reach of asylum-seeking
women’s voices – which are far too seldom
heard or considered.
