Understanding & Responding to Family Violence in the Context of Migration

Join us on June 29, 2016. The Muslim Resource Centre for Social Support and Integration, the CRHESI, and the Centre for Research & Education on Violence against Women & Children invite you to a community of practice conversation regarding the challenges and opportunities in work to end domestic violence in the context of migration. This free forum will provide:

  1. A comprehensive description of current policy & evidence contexts.
  2. Fresh discussion of approaches to responding to family violence in our newcomer communities.
  3. Increased sense of community engagement, including a clear vision of the community of practice and their distinct/shared areas of work.

The day will consider macro- and micro-level questions and contexts, including evidence & research needs, and policy perspectives in the field. International and national perspectives will include an overview of gendered migration and immigrant family integration. Please register here.
