Violence against women migrants and refugees (GBV-MIG), Gender-net plus project (2019-2021)

This research explored Gender Based Violence (GBV) in the context of migration, analysing the ways in which discriminations and inequalities based on gender, race, nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and age, interact to make certain women more vulnerable to GBV and less able to access support and services for survivors than others.
