Speaking at IARS 4th International Annual Conference

“Community-led Solutions to Gender Inequality, Victimisation and Offending”

This week I was speaking at this conference about the PhD research that I am conducting:

The Lived Experience of Migrant Women who are Survivors of Domestic Violence




The 4th IARS International Annual Conference is titled “Community-led Solutions to Gender Inequality, Victimisation & Offending”, and will be held on 15th December 2015 (9:00 – 17:00) in central London at The Honourable Society of the Middle Temple, Middle Temple Lane, London EC4Y 9AT, UK. This is a CPD accredited event that will be chaired by IARS’ Founder & Director, Dr. Theo Gavrielides and Simon Israel – Channel 4 Home Affairs Correspondent and IARS Patron (Follow the event on Tweeter #IARS2015)

Over the last few decades, gender patterns in victimisation and offending have changed. When put  in the context of gender inequality, these patterns present serious challenges for policy-making, legislation and practice. The IARS International Institute has a mission to explore, test and disseminate bottom up, user-led and community born ideas and methods that address persistent inequalities and social injustice. Focusing on current issues of international significance, this year’s annual conference will bring together affected women, policy-makers, researchers, funders and practitioners to debate and publish cutting-edge work on:

  • Violence against women(e.g. Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), forced marriages, domestic violence, sexual violence);
  • Migration, Asylum & Gender(e.g. legal aid, detention centres, health and social services);
  • Female Offenders(e.g. women with BAME background, mother offenders & children, self-harm, foreign nationals);
  • Women-led, best practice modelsand responses to victimisation, lawbreaking and injustice;
  • Understanding and addressing inequality, crime and victimisation through gender.
