Migrant and Refugee Women in Australia: The Safety and Security Study Design and implementation

About this event

This discussion will focus on the background behind the landmark Migrant and Refugee Women Safety and Security Study. This was a national study undertaken by Harmony Alliance: Migrant and Refugee Women for Change (a national women's alliance) and Monash University.

The seminar will explore the survey design and implementation, as a national first focused on migrant and refugee women's self-report data on domestic and family violence as well as experiences of crime, trust in/attitudes towards institutions including police, and broader financial security. The discussion will revolve around the impetus for the survey, the challenges and benefits of undertaking a survey such as this and the ways in which ongoing research, and research partnerships to lead such work, are important.
