In a new article published in Social & Legal Studies, Catherine Briddick (Martin James Departmental Lecturer in Gender and Forced Migration) demonstrates how UK immigration law discriminates against women. Here she writes that “women are disadvantaged by immigration law’s distribution of migration statuses; and…this disadvantage is the result of rules which indirectly discriminate against women, discrimination which may be unlawful under Article 14 ECHR.”

Briddick draws on data from over 10 years to show that certain migration opportunities are distributed differently to women and men.
