Syrian Women in Transition The Landscape - Civil-Military Occasional Papers 2/2021

Between November 2018 and November 2019, we conducted semi-structured interviews in Jordan and Lebanon, primarily in Arabic, with 100 women between the ages of 18 and 63 (most in their 30s and 40s). Our previous paper provides a snapshot of their personal experiences, showing the multi-faceted reality and diverse situations Syrian women face.

This paper – the second in a series of three – is part of a research project on Syrian refugee women. It focuses on findings from the fieldwork conducted by the primary author on the experiences of Syrian women in Jordan and Lebanon. Our wider research focus was on understanding the status of Syrian women refugees in two host countries (Jordan and Lebanon) and one settlement country (Australia), and how their experiences of forced migration may influence their political participation – meaning their ability to participate in processes that advance their immediate rights – in a post-conflict Syria.
