Abstract [en]

This report is prepared as a discussion paper for the meeting of the Nordic Council of Ministers for Gender Equality in Helsinki on October 3, 2016. Its purpose is to give information about gender-sensitivity in current asylum processes in the Nordic countries. It deals with gender-specific guidelines, gender-relevant information and gender-sensitive practices related to different stages of the asylum process. Furthermore, it discusses how the gender dimension is taken into consideration in the determination of refugee status. In addition, it includes gender-disaggregated asylum statistics for 2015, when the number of asylum seekers grew rapidly in Europe, including the Nordic countries.
