News & Events
The workshop is organized by the Graduate Program on Migration Studies, the Program on Emergency and Disaster Management and the NCJW Women and Gender Studies at Tel Aviv University in collaboration with the Israeli School of Humanitarian Action and SID- ISRAEL.
The workshop will take place at Tel Aviv University on April 29th, between 12:00-16:00. If the consequences of the COVID-19 will limit us, we will hold a virtual workshop.
Researchers (including graduate students and practitioners) are hereby invited to send abstracts no longer than two pages (500-1000 words) describing their research. The research should relate to gender in the context of ‘forced’ migration. This may, however, include a nuanced understanding of diverse pressures that ‘force’ women, men and LGBTI to migrate (such as family or gang violence, severe economic need etc.) and thus include both voluntary and involuntary movements. Proposals may consider gender aspects at any stage of displacement or forced migration, including pre-departure in order to analyze the reasons for leaving the country of origin, during transit and in the host country.
