This chapter examines the landscape of international migration within which female refugee migrants are positioned. It first gives an overview of inward migration flows into Britain and France while bearing in mind both the general European context and processes of feminisation which have occurred over the last fifty years. It then presents the demographic and sociological characteristics of female refugee migration to the two countries concerned. Information about these characteristics is important in that it provides statutory and voluntary agencies dealing with refugee women with the knowledge and understanding required to assess the latter's specific problems, needs, and aspirations and therefore to offer them adequate protection and resources for their social, political, and economic engagement in the destination country. It also helps such agencies in the effective lobbying of national legislators over the making of laws which respect international human rights principles and rules. Any discussion of third-wave migrants would be incomplete without mention of the category sans papiers, which covers individuals with diverse origins, migration experiences, and trajectories.
