IDPs in the Global North: Women’s Journeys to Escape Domestic Violence

Research output: Other contribution


Tens of thousands of women and children in the UK are displaced due to the human rights violation of violence against women, but they are not recognised or responded to as IDPs. Their individual and hidden journeys to escape violence cause support needs, and a loss of rights, but state and service responses are often inadequate. What does that say about women’s citizenship in countries of the Global North? And would using the lens of internal displacement focus minds and actions on more just, effective, and rights-based responses?
