Getting Here

How do survivors of intimate partner violence fare when applying for refugee protection in different countries of the Americas? Join us for a presentation of recent research findings and a panel discussion with WashU faculty experts and researchers Tonya Edmond, Tabea Linhard, Katie Meyer, Kim Thuy Seelinger, Lindsay Stark and Julia Uyttewaal.

Together with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and UC Berkeley’s Human Rights Center, WashU’s new Center for Human Rights, Gender and Migration released a groundbreaking research report that examines the challenges affecting survivors of intimate partner violence in the Americas who need to access refugee protection. The new report, entitled "Intimate Partner Violence and Asylum in the Americas: Canada, Chile, Mexico, Peru" and authored by Kim Thuy Seelinger and Julia Uyttewaal, can be found on RefWorld.

Space is limited; registration is required. Lunch will be provided.
