PRFDHR Seminar: When does Migration Law Discriminate against Women?, Dr. Catherine Briddick

Rules which explicitly distribute migration opportunities differently on the grounds of sex/gender, such as prohibitions on certain women’s emigration, may produce such disadvantage. Women may also, however, be disadvantaged by facially gender-neutral rules.
