Women Refugees: The Forgotten Majority

Anurima Sood, a Law Student at Jindal Global Law School.
ABSTRACT:

This paper discusses gender and application and interpretation of the Refugee Convention 1951 vis-à-vis female refugee experience with a primary focus on conflict-related claims by analyzing case laws, reports, and academic discussion and intends to seek whether mistreatment during conflict comes within the ambit of persecution. Subsequent discussion will also try to highlight the claimed 1951 Convention grounds for women refugees and the procedural problems faced by them in such claims. The paper will also engage in the perceived similarity between procedural hurdles faced by them during conflict and peacetime.
