The Center for Gender & Refugee Studies (CGRS) is the nation’s leading organization supporting women asylum-seekers fleeing gender related harm, at both the practice and policy levels. CGRS works to impact the development of law and policy to protect women fleeing gender-based violence.
Gender asylum currently represents the cutting edge issue in the development of refugee law, and CGRS is playing a central role in shaping the legal definition and ensuring that the United States offers asylum protection to women who flee serious violations of their fundamental human rights. Established in 1999 and housed at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, CGRS has as its overarching objectives to positively impact decisions in individual cases, while influencing the overall development of the law nationally and internationally.
