The European Parliament and the Directorate-General for Internal Policies of the Union have issued a free publication on gender related asylum claims. The study comprises nine EU member states (France, Belgium, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Romania, Spain, Sweden and the UK) and comprises of a comparative analysis of the law, policies and practices for gender-related asylum claims.
The resulting comparative analysis demonstrates the many disparities in the way EU Member States handle such claims. The report concludes that women are not guaranteed consistent gender-sensitive treatment when they seek protection in Europe. It identifies a number of recommendations for a range of institutions in order to achieve a gender-sensitive asylum system across Europe.
