General Recommendation on Displaced and Stateless Women
On 5 November 2014, the UNHCR welcomed the release of the General Recommendation No. 32 on the gender-related dimensions of refugee, asylum, nationality and statelessness of women which OPBP helped prepare in 2009-2010.
The Recommendation is on the particular impacts of statelessness and displacement on women. It calls for countries to adopt a more gender-sensitive approach to dealing with women refugees, asylum seekers and stateless people in order to take account
of the abuses they frequently suffer.
