Asylum for Victims of Domestic Violence: Scrutiny under International Refugee Law, International Human Rights Law, and the Asylum Laws of France and the United States"

In 2013, worldwide, more than 30% of all women who had been in a relationship had experienced physical and/or sexual violence from their intimate partner. While states have made steps in supporting victims of domestic violence generally, the protection of migrant victims remains deficient. This preliminary thesis dissertation explores how domestic violence may be a valid basis for refugee status under the Refugee Convention."
