Women and the Global ‘Refugee Crisis’

On March 8, 2016, CTDC directors, Dr Nof Nasser Eddin and Dr Nour Abu Assab, will be speaking at Warwick University Community Speakers Series about Women and the Global Refugee Crisis, focusing on refugee women’s experiences in transit countries and in the UK following their resettlement. The talk will draw from CTDC research findings on the refugees and will attempt to shift the attention from the so-called refugee crisis to women’s experiences of refuge.

The panel will include Cassie Adjei (Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre), and and a speaker from Birmingham Asylum and Refugee Association will discuss the gendered nature of the refugee crisis and the particular challenges facing women.
The event will take place at the Modern Records Centre (MRC) at the University of Warwick and will start around 6 pm. Space is limited and to attend the event you will need to book in advance via this link.
