Displaced Lives: The Threat of Violence for Refugee, Displaced and Conflict Affected Women

This is part 1 of a series of 2 Fall and Spring "Incubation" events examining Gender Based Violence (GBV) and refugee/displacement/conflict issues in origin, transition, and resettlement countries and interdisciplinary responses to this violence. This Fall event will focus on GBV and refugees/displaced in origin (morning session) and transition (afternoon session) country. This will be done through numerous expert panelists, stimulating conversation, and collaborative break out sessions between researchers and practitioners. It is meant to broaden understanding of GBV within refugee and displaced populations related to inequality, social welfare, health, well-being, justice, programmatic response, and institutions. This event is meant for a non-expert audience of students, researchers, faculty, Community Based Organizations (CBOs), Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), and staff. It is organized and sponsored by the Center on Violence Against Women and Children (VAWC) of the Rutgers School of Social Work, and co-sponsored by the Rutgers School of Public Health, Office of Global Public Health Affairs, the Institute for Women's Leadership (IWL), the Center for Women's Global Leadership (CWGL), the International Rescue Committee (IRC), Sanar: A Wellness Institute, and Smile for Charity. It is funded through a grant through Rutgers Global.
