Afghan women : a preliminary snapshot of a complex community

by Routley, Vivien | Brotherhood of St. Laurence. Ecumenical Migration Centre | Hannan, Ainslie | White, Paul | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: unpub. (Brotherhood of St Laurence. Ecumenical Migration Centre) 2001Description: 33 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: [Prepared by Vivien Routley, Ainslie Hannan, Dr. paul White with women of the Afgan community]Summary: This publication aspires to be part of a dialogue which will assist an understanding of the experiences, skills, needs and expectations of Afghan women. It is a contribution of EMC's 'Women and Their Families Program' which gives focused attention to women and their families from newly emerging communities, mainly refugee/humanitarian entrants. EMC trusts that community services planning and delivery can be enhanced and hopes that interest in the Afghan community will lead to further enquiry and outreach. A paper of this length cannot contain all relevant information about this very complex community. It is EMC's hope however, that it will provide a basis for the building of relationships of trust and further understanding. Such relationship building efforts by service providers are crucial for this community whose pre- arrival experience has been of conflict, abuse and corruption.
