Academic Bulletin “Refugees: Today and Tomorrow” 8/2021

Bulgarian flag

The third issue of 2021 of Bulgaria's academic bulletin “Refugees: Today and Tomorrow” is dedicated to women and forced migration. It was prepared by the Bulgarian Council for Refugees and Migrants and UNHCR Bulgaria.

UNHCR data for 2020 show that 47% of the 84.2 million people forced to leave their homes are women. In Bulgaria in 2020, 364 women applied for international protection, with 46 being granted refugee status and 160 humanitarian status.

This issue includes articles that, on the one hand, contribute to better understanding of those that address Bulgarian society to refugee women, and, on the other hand, tell more about themselves. The fate of Iranians after the Islamic Revolution, the emergence of the feminist movement in the Arab world, building a new life in a new country as a female journalist from Iran, and the necessity of a comprehensive approach to international protection in Bulgaria are just some of the topics you can read about in the issue.
