Chapter Summary

This chapter provides a gender perspective on the provisions of the core international human rights treaties of particular importance to female refugees. The pertinent General Comments and Recommendations of the committees that monitor implementation of these treaties are examined, as well as the concluding observations and recommendations under the reporting procedure of the treaty regime, and relevant jurisprudence under the individual complaint procedures established by four of the treaties. The chapter applies the international human rights treaties to a range of issues that female refugees face in relation to these rights, including rights violations that take place during flight and in refugee camps, to the asylum application and adjudication process, and to problems refugees often face once settled that result from discrimination by both state and non-state actors in such areas as housing, employment, and education.

Keywords: asylum seekers; discrimination; female refugees; international human rights treaties; jurisprudence; refugee camps; rights violations
