This chapter explores the question of citizenship-building processes in relation to women asylum seekers and refugees and their civic participation not only in discrete refugee women's community associations or organisations but also in (longer established) migrant women's community associations. It first discusses the relationship between the question of citizenship, refugee women, and their associations. It then presents an overview of the establishment and development of refugee women's associations in Britain and France. It also examines the forms of activities and activism in which refugee women engage. Finally, it asks what conclusions can be drawn about these forms of activities/activism in terms of drawing this section of the population into a more inclusive model of citizenship.

Keywords:   refugee women, Britain, France, asylum seekers, citizenship-building, citizenship, community associations, activism
