Established in 1999 at the Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco, the Center for Gender and Refugee Studies (CGRS) is primarily interested in supporting women asylum-seekers who are fleeing gender related harm. Additionally, they work "to impact the development of law and policy to protect women fleeing gender-based violence." The Center's website is a great place to learn about many of the issues related to these subjects, and new visitors will want to take a look at their quarterly newsletter and then look over the results of some recent cases involving asylum law. The "Country Conditions" area is a fine way to get up to speed on the conditions involving these topical areas, and visitors can learn about conditions for women in countries including Mexico, Honduras, and Bangladesh. Within the "Campaigns" area, visitors can also learn about the Center's recent work, and on particular legal campaigns which have been completed.
