Download resource

Asylum Aid has published a briefing paper on the Double standards facing women seeking asylum in Europe.

Asylum Aid recommends:

 women seeking asylum are provided with relevant information; female interviewers, decision makers and interpreters trained on issues relating to sexual violence and trauma; childcare and counselling.

 double standards are replaced by comparable standards.

 a culture of disbelief is replaced by an assumption of belief and a culture of protection.
