Keywords: Religious Element; Homosexual Refugees, Religious Players.
The religious element in the migration process is subject to multiple studies. This is not the case with regard to the religious element in the international protection of homosexual refugees. The aim of the article is to propose a new research, through a sociological and juridical interdisciplinary methodology, about links between the religious and the demands of international protection for reasons related to sexual orientation. The study of the possible roles of the religious factor will be conducted through players (individuals or representatives of institutions or groups) who explicitly or implicitly put themselves in the asylum dynamics according to the religious element. The roles of religious players will be rebuilt through the qualitative approach of narrative interview and document collection.
