PRFDHR Seminar: Activism from Exile: How Activists Abroad Influence Politics Back Home, Professor Elizabeth Nugent

How do activists in exile mobilize citizens back home, and how do regimes respond when they do? In an on-going book project titled Exiles: How Activist Abroad Influence Politics Back Home, Professor Elizabeth Nugent investigates politics in exile, whether and how activists persist in activism once they are forcibly dislocated from their homeland, by drawing on insights from research on the biographical effects of activism, psycho-behavioral effects of trauma and emotion, and forced migration.

It is possible to identify gendered disadvantage at almost every point in a migrant woman’s journey, physical and legal, from country of origin to country of destination, from admission to naturalization. Rules which explicitly distribute migration opportunities differently on the grounds of sex/gender, such as prohibitions on certain women’s emigration, may produce such disadvantage. Women may also, however, be disadvantaged by facially gender-neutral rules.

It is well established that children exposed to war and displacement are at increased risk for the development of mental health problems, including post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, and behavioural problems.
