Project Description: Sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) is a major infringement of women’s

human rights and an obstacle to sustainable development. SGBV against migrant and refugee women is widespread, but often remains invisible and under-analysed both in academic research and policymaking. This research takes an intersectional approach to understand SGBV in migration contexts, analysing the ways in which different forms discrimination and inequality based on gender,'race', nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and age, interact to make some more people more vulnerable that others to SGBV and less able to access support and services.
