Bridging the (Asylum) Protection Gap for women
"Women in the Asylum System: Bridging the Protection Gap"

- Female interviewer & interpreter
- Trained interviewer & interpreter
Refugee women will be joined by mental health practitioners, solicitors, politicians, activists and supporters to discuss a progressive way forward in the region
