Moira Dustin is a lecturer in the School of Law, Politics and Sociology at the University of Sussex. She was the UK lead on the European Research Council project SOGICA (Sexual orientation and gender identity claims of asylum: a European human rights challenge) (2016–2020). The project, led by Professor Nuno Ferreira, generated the first ever theoretically and empirically-grounded comparative and comprehensive picture of the status and legal experiences of asylum-seekers across Europe claiming international protection on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity (SOGI), and made recommendations for fairer treatment of SOGI asylum claims in Europe.
