Invitation to our End of Project Conference – 26 & 27 June 2023
It is a huge pleasure to invite you to our end of project conference on 26th and 27th June 2023 at the University of Southampton, UK.
In the conference we will present findings and outputs of the project Redressing Gendered Health Inequalities of Displaced Women and Girls in Contexts of Protracted Crisis in Central and South America (ReGHID). ReGHID is an ESRC funded interdisciplinary project that looks at health needs and rights of women and girls in displacement in South-South migration as well as the barriers/gaps of protection that affect them.
The conference is a day and a half, and we will have three themes structuring panels and keynotes: migration, gender and vulnerabilities; methodologies of research about and with populations in displacement; and migration, gender and responsibility for protection. The agenda is here.
We are also screening a 26-minute documentary Salir Adelante/Moving Forward. Salir Adelante is a documentary based on the stories of Venezuelan forced migrant women and girls who fled humanitarian crisis to rebuild their lives and hopes while experiencing the everyday struggles of unfamiliar and sometimes adverse places in Brazil. The documentary calls the attention to the perilous journeys to hope, safety and wellbeing they undertook as well as the failures of protection regimes and policies to redress the many risks, harms and barriers that stop migrant women and girls from enjoying the rights, dignity, and respect they are entitled to. The documentary screening will be followed by a Q&A session and debate.
We really hope you can join us!
