A Healthy Start? Experiences of Refugee and Asylum Seeking Women in Scotland

Giovanna Fassetta, Sylvie Da Lomba, Neil Quinn

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

Glasgow has been home to an increasing number of asylum seekers since it became one of the main UK dispersal cities, in 1999 (Wren, 2007). Due to the fluid situation determined by the asylum seeker status, there are no definite figures on the number of asylum seeking women 1 who are at various stages of the asylum process. However, based on 2011 figures, the total number of asylum seeking women in Scotland is between 6,000 and 10,000 (Da Lomba & Murray, 2014).
