Beschreibung

The Iraqi women in this book have made Australia their 'home' in the years following the Gulf War in 1991, and are the first generation to move to a small rural town in Australia. The focus is on their experiences of resettlement, their sense of emotional wellbeing and belonging. Using narrative accounts of women's experiences of displacement and resettlement, Katie Vasey offers an innovative analysis of migration, in the context of shifting experiences of locality, identity, difference and membership. In doing so, she contributes to our understanding of how Iraqi refugees perceive the process of forced migration and draws upon and contributes to a range of broader theoretical approaches surrounding forced migration, such as social inequalities and structural vulnerabilities, multiculturalism and integration, transnationalism, and return migration.
