Every year, thousands of individuals claim asylum in Europe based on their sexual orientation or gender identity, and existing studies indicate that their claims are often treated unfairly, based on inappropriate legal, cultural and social stereotypes. Dr Nuno Ferreira will discuss these asylum claims and present the project SOGICA – Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Claims of Asylum: A European human rights challenge, which recently attracted €1 million funding from the European Research Council at an event of STAR (Student Action for Refugees) Liverpool on March 16th.
