Asylum Aid and Amnesty International (UK)
invite you to the launch of new research on

women asylum seekers

and

the UN Special Rapporteur on violence against women

Could women asylum seekers in the UK benefit from the individual complaints mechanism of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on violence against women? This innovative research analyses the cases of the women asylum seekers in a number of countries who have used this mechanism to prevent themselves from being deported. It also considers issues that can be raised with the Special Rapporteur on her visit to London in January 2007.

Speakers

• Poonam Joshi, Gender Policy Advisor, Amnesty International UK

• Jan Doerfel, Director, International Research Centre on Social Minorities

• Debora Singer, Coordinator, Refugee Women’s Resource Project at Asylum Aid


Thursday 7th December, 6 - 8pm at The Human Rights Action Centre
17-25 New Inn Yard
London
EC2A 3EA
