Webinar: The multiple jeopardy of gender-based violence, migration and COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed how the intersection of multiple forms of discrimination and inequalities - in gender, class, geography, ethnicity, race and citizenship status - have devastating impacts on migrants health.
This webinar explores the multiple jeopardy of GBV, migration and COVID-19. We gladly announce that Professor Ines Keygnaert will be one of the panellists at the webinar that will take place on Wednesday 3rd February at 2PM. If you wish to attend, you can secure a spot by registering here.
GBV is known to increase in emergencies, which has been seen in the COVID-19 pandemic. This has been attributed to factors inclusing economic insecurity, social stress and social isolation measures, with individuals facing increased difficulty in accessing support networks. Migrants are a group particularly vulnerable to gender-based violence (GBV), facing a unique set of risks which may present before, during or after migration exacerbated by factors such as inadequate legal, state or social protective contexts.
This event is part of 'Borderings: Migration, Gender and Health series' and is co-hosted by the Gender Centre, Lancet Micration, UCL Migration Research Unit and UCL Centre for Health of Women, Children and Adolescents.
