OUVRAGE : F. Staiano, The Human Rights of Migrant Women in International and European Law


European and domestic migration law indirectly discriminates against third-country national migrant women. Can human and fundamental rights law remedy this gender bias? This book seeks to unveil the existence of a gender bias in European norms – at both EU and domestic level – regulating migrant women’s family life and employment. Most importantly, the book aims to analyse the potential of European human and fundamental rights law to expose and correct this bias. Touching upon the two macro-areas of family life and employment, it argues that migrant women’s most common life circumstances must come to the fore in order to fulfil both of these aims. The book reviews and critically assesses relevant examples of human and fundamental rights jurisprudence at supranational and domestic level. It identifies effective judicial interpretations to ensure migrant women’s enjoyment of their rights and entitlements in conditions of equality and non-discrimination.
