The Human Rights of Migrant Women in International and European Law shows the existence of a gender bias in European norms – at both EU and domestic level – regulating migrant women’s family life and employment. It analyses the potential of European human rights and fundamental rights law to expose and correct this bias.
The author argues that migrant women’s most common life circumstances must come to the fore in order to achieve this. The author assesses relevant examples of human rights and fundamental rights jurisprudence at supranational and domestic levels and identifies effective judicial interpretations to ensure migrant women’s enjoyment of their rights and benefits based on equality and non-discrimination. This book is of interest to human rights lawyers.
