Abstract

Despite the fact that the first cases of asylum granted for reasons of sexual orientation date back to the 1980s, most research on this issue began to emerge only in 2010. Most of this literature is about Refugee Status Determination (RSD) and does not approach the process of local integration. There is a lack of comparative studies among different States, with the exception of the ones relating to RSD in European countries. This paper is therefore a first attempt at approaching asylum based on sexual orientation in a North-South perspective, analysing RSD and local integration in Brazil and Spain.
