The Protection Gap is gendered in that it presents barriers and challenges to many women who seek asylum in ways which are not normally a factor for men. There are five specific barriers which can affect women’s asylum claims in different, and adverse ways.

– Female interviewer & interpreter

– Trained interviewer & interpreter

– Counselling

– Information

Refugee women will be joined by mental health practitioners, solicitors, politicians, activists and supporters to discuss a progressive way forward in the region
