Gender discriminations and inequalities faced by Nepalese migrant women in Portugal

Detalhes do projeto

Description

Under the scope of the Integral Human Development programme from CADOS: Católica Doctoral School, this study aims to diagnose and analyze types of gender discrimination against Nepalese migrant women in Portugal and the inequalities they face. The theoretical background is based on the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (UN, 2017), the capabilities approach (Nussbaum, 2001), the Feminist theory (Kristeva, 1982; Irigaray, 1993; Bartkowsky, 1999; Ettinger, 2006), women’s studies, an intersectional approach (Crenshaw, 1989; Collins, 2015) and transnational intersectionality (Grabe, 2012), together with a number of papers approaching the marginalization of Nepalese women elsewhere and their integration in Portugal. The research follows a qualitative, intersectional and interpretative approach, combining participant observation, the field diary and the ethnographic method. Thirty (30) semi-structured and in-depth interviews with twenty (20) first generation and ten (10) second generation migrant Nepalese women in Portugal will be applied. In what regards the research question, it is the following: what are the main inequalities and discriminations faced by Nepalese migrant women in Portugal, the main resources used by them and the main capabilities which can be developed together with them (to avoid the reproduction of inequalities)?
