Interrogating Borders and their Impact on Women’s Human Rights

Our programme area on Interrogating Borders and their Impact on Women’s Human Rights involves recognising and addressing the issue of trafficking from a feminist perspective and building knowledge on the remit of the principle of state obligation as it applies to stateless, refugee and asylum-seeking women. It builds on our ongoing work with the Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women, the Global Network of Sex Work Projects and other partners on developing a feminist anti-trafficking manifesto, so that the manifesto can become a resource for women’s groups to advocate in national, regional and international spaces. We are also exploring how the principles of substantive equality, non-discrimination and state obligation can be more systematically applied to protect the rights of stateless and refugee women. Further, we interrogate the human rights violations incurred through border controls, examine how intersectional forms of oppression are compounded by the presence of borders, and build links with affected groups.
