Abstract : This fully-revised second edition of Gendering the International Asylum and Refugee Debate aims to remedy the current lack of gender-specific analyses of asylum and refugee issues. It provides a comprehensive account of the situation of women in global forced migration and explains the ways in which women's experiences are shaped by gendered relations and structures. With fully updated content, Freedman presents a wide-ranging examination of all sides of the asylum and refugee debate, looking at causes of refugee flows ; international laws and conventions and their application ; responses to refugees and asylum seekers ; policies and legislation of Western governments in relation to refugees and asylum seekers ; and the experiences of refugees and asylum seekers themselves.
