In the context of the current Mediterranean ‘crisis’ and ongoing negotiations of migration policies at national and European Union (EU) level, this Issue explores some of the problematic aspects raised by sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) asylum claims. Going beyond the studies available in this field, which are often focused only on the refugee status determination, the contributions published in this Issue scrutinise the entire process of claiming asylum undertaken by SOGI claimants. Adopting different perspectives based on international, EU and domestic law, all authors advance appropriate proposals to overcome the legal obstacles that prevent, to this day, the protection of SOGI claimants and the full enjoyment of their human rights in Europe.
