Qualitative Research on Social Support and Violence Against Women in Forced Migration
Featuring Dr. Karin Wachter
Assistant Professor at Arizona State University School of Social Work
Please join us for our upcoming Virtual Brown Bag event featuring Dr. Karin Wachter from Arizona State University School of Social Work. Dr. Wachter will present her grounded theory of social support among women who experience war, displacement, and resettlement and discuss how this theoretical perspective informs her qualitative research on intimate partner violence among women who resettle to the US as refugees. Feel free to share this invitation and widely.
Karin Wachter’s goal is to generate applied research for local, national, and international practitioners and policy makers to alleviate the psychosocial consequences of forced migration and violence against women.
Dr. Wachter worked for 10 years as a humanitarian aid worker focused on violence against women and girls in war and displacement, primarily in African contexts. Since returning to academia, she has worked with U.S.-based refugee resettlement agencies as an evaluator and researcher.
