Sexuality, Oppression, and Forced Migration (Hardcover) (Claire Bennett)
about this item
This interdisciplinary book - based in case studies of lesbian asylum seekers in the UK - serves to bring together academic debates concerning sexuality and gender, forced migration, sexual violence, and refugee law, and provide useful insights into how women navigate the asylum process, their renegotiation of public and private boundaries and sexual, cultural, legal and social norms. As few studies have actively engaged with lesbian asylum seekers and refugees themselves, this book offers an essential read at a time of growing international pressure and concern regarding how homosexuals are protected from persecution.
