Analytical Review of the Draft Law №3387 «On granting protection to foreigners and stateless persons»

On April 23, 2020, a group of deputies submitted to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine a draft law №3387 “On granting protection to foreigners and stateless persons”, the purpose of which is to regulate legislation in the field of protection of foreigners and stateless persons by implementing special European Union legislation to the legislation of Ukraine, as well as the elimination of gaps in national legislation related to the granting of asylum to persons in Ukraine. “

Does the draft law №3387 take into account the requirements of the Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence (the Istanbul Convention) to protect the rights of women asylum seekers and refugee women affected by gender-based violence? Will the protection system really become effective and efficient if this draft law is passed?
