TASA Thursday: Migration, precarity and family violence: Examining women's experiences in Australia.

Join us on Thursday 18th April 2024, for this month's TASA Thursday session which will be presented by guest speaker Dr Stephanie Vasil. This session is titled "Migration, precarity and family violence: Examining women's experiences in Australia."

Drawing on interviews with 18 victim-survivors with insecure migration status, and 23 professional stakeholders, this presentation examines precarity in relation to migrant women’s lives in Australia, focusing on the ways that their specific circumstances contribute to and are compounded by the experience of family violence (FV).

In doing so it considers how precarity functions as a structural condition that has implications in terms of various forms or patterns of inequality that can heighten women’s vulnerability to FV and undermine their efforts to ensure their safety and survival.

The presentation draws from a qualitative study that sought to contribute to a growing body of feminist scholarship that considers how structural inequalities related to the status of non-citizenship impact the dynamics of FV and help-seeking options for migrant women in Western multicultural societies.
