    Women’s Right to Asylum: Protecting the Rights of Female Asylum Seekers in Europe? [REVIEW]Jane Freedman - 2008 - Human Rights Review 9 (4):413-433.
    Criticisms have been made against international laws and conventions on asylum and refugees, arguing that these have been based on a male model of definition, which have ignored women’s persecutions. This article will argue that recent developments in European asylum policy have the potential to deepen this discrimination and to further reduce the rights of female asylum seekers. Although there have been some positive developments in jurisprudence that have recognised that gender-specific persecution may be the basis for granting asylum, these (...)

    HIV/AIDS in Rural India: Context and Health Care Needs.Saseendran Pallikadavath, Laila Garda, Hemant Apte, Jane Freedman & R. William Stones - 2005 - Journal of Biosocial Science 37 (5):641.
    Primary research on HIV/AIDS in India has predominantly focused on known risk groups such as sex workers, STI clinic attendees and long-distance truck drivers, and has largely been undertaken in urban areas. There is evidence of HIV spreading to rural areas but very little is known about the context of the infection or about issues relating to health and social impact on people living with HIV/AIDS.

    Where is the Justice in EU Anti-Trafficking Policy? Feminist Reflections on European Union Policy-Making Processes.Jane Freedman & Sharron FitzGerald - 2021 - European Journal of Women's Studies 28 (4):440-454.
    In this article, we reflect on our personal experience of acting as ‘independent academic experts’ in an European Union policy forum, to reflect on how the EU utilises gender to legitimise certain policy discourses in combating sex trafficking. Starting from our personal experience, we draw on wider feminist research on gender expertise and on Fraser’s new reflexive theory of political injustice, to consider how the EU structures debates in this area to determine ‘who’ is entitled to speak and be heard (...)
