Happy International Women’s Day

On this special day dedicated to women, IARS would like to say a big thank you to the women among its staff, volunteers, members and supporters for all their hard work and dedication to IARS’  vision for a society  in which  everyone  is given a chance  to actively participate in social problem solving.

Unfortunately, gender is still a source of inequality in both the UK and internationally and women continue to be ‘discriminated against in health, education and the labour market – with negative repercussions for their freedoms’ (United Nations Development Programme).

IARS is on the front line to address gender inequality in our society and is currently running a project, the Refugee Women's Action Research Group,  focusing on a particularly disadvantaged group of women and the challenges they face accessing health and legal services in the UK. 

“People should know more about refugees and asylum-seekers…and know that sometimes you are going through some tough things, maybe you are depressed or you might not have anyone to talk to…But that’s if you’re brave enough for them to know about your situation. People like me, I’m kind of shy and I think that if they know about me then they might be rude or not want to attend to me.”

 Interview participant, Refugee Women’s Action Research Project

As part of this project and in collaboration with the Institute of Diversity Research at Buckinghamshire New University, IARS has recently published good practice guidance for conducting action research with refugee women. This resource seeks to support refugee and asylum-seeking women (RASW) in undertaking participatory action research into the most pressing needs faced by women who are refugees or asylum-seekers.

Written by Dr Margaret Greenfields, this guide for undertaking action research with RASW is based upon discussions with the women who are participating in the IARS research project, findings from the literature review and also knowledge gleaned from carrying out participatory action research (PAR) with other excluded and marginalised communities (Greenfields and Ryder, 2012).

Action Research with Refugee Women aims to provide supporting information to the volunteers carrying out research for IARS’ Refugee Women’s Action Research project and also aims to share good practice knowledge with organisations working with RASW and undertaking action research with this group.
