Women in Dadaab: On the gendered insecurities in forced displacement

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

Sammanfattning: War and violent conflict have always caused uprooting of families and displacement within and across boarders in search of safer grounds. However, human displacement and the security of refugees continue to be underprioritized matters within practices and theories of international security. This study investigates the insecurities of refugees from the subjugated position of women in one of the world’s largest refugee camps and asks how we may understand the continued failure to facilitate security for women in forced displacement. From a feminist perspective and through a multilevel and multidimensional concept of security I find interrelated factors of different types of violence harming women’s bodies and scope of freedom and independency. Reaching through the spheres of international and national, public and private, I identify underlying and related factors connected to the inadequate facilitation of security, showing how insufficient NGO funding, lack of local ownership, international discourse and national security politics link directly to the many insecurities faced by women fleeing war and disasters.
