Safety Nets Re-imagined: Domestic Abuse and Migrant Communities


In the context of domestic abuse, what does a safety net mean? What role do language and culture play in support and how might we create culturally responsive services to meet the needs of migrant victims? An evening of talks and discussion at the University of Suffolk, 5 November 2019 5.30pm-9pm will consider this issue. Organised by Dr Olumide Adisa and co-produced with migrant women, the event will use different art forms to examine migrant women's journeys to safety based on accounts from victims/survivors and professionals.
