Gratis frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.Not Born a Refugee Woman is an in-depth inquiry into the identity construction of refugee women. It challenges and rethinks current identity concepts, policies, and practices in the context of a globalizing environment, and in the increasingly racialized post-September 11th context, from the perspective of refugee women. This collection brings together scholar_practitioners from across a wide range of disciplines. The authors emphasize refugee women's agency, resilience, and creativity, in the continuum of domestic, civil, and transnational violence and conflicts, whether in flight or in resettlement, during their uprooted journey and beyond. Through the analysis of local examples and international case studies, the authors critically examine gendered and interrelated factors such as location, humanitarian aid, race, cultural norms, and current psycho-social research that affect the identity and well being of refugee women. This volume is destined to a wide audience of scholars, students, policy makers, advocates, and service providers interested in new developments and critical practices in domains related to gender and forced migrations.

"...a compelling collection of testimonies, dialogues, research and experiences with displaced women in a diversity of locales and from a diversity of angles... This volume should stimulate research at the graduate level and also motivate further collaborative inter-disciplinary research to feed into policy analysis and policy making. Therefore, it will be of interest to a wide audience of scholars, students, policy makers, advocates and service providers interested in new developments and critical practices in a wide range of domains related to gender and forced migrations." * Journal of Refugee Studies "The book as a whole offers an array of difficult topics: the way women's identities are shaped and reshaped by the complicated experiences of refugeeism; global sex trade and sex trafficking of Eastern European women; connections between war and homelessness...a valuable text that is bound to challenge students and teachers alike, in both our methodologies and our personal desires for an easy consumption of knowledge about the world and ourselves." * Women's Review of Books
