Translating Pain Into Action: A Study of Gender-based Violence and Minority Ethnic Women in Ireland
The findings of the first major study conducted in Ireland on gender based violence (GBV) and minority ethnic women are contained in this report. The focus is on illuminating the specific risks of GBV faced by minority ethnic women and the particular barriers they can face in accessing required services in Ireland. It is on the basis of this information that principles of best practice for service providers are provided as well as recommendations for national policy and legislation, service planning and service delivery. Peer interviewers were trained to conduct the qualitative research interviews in the report in a range of languages. Exploration of pre-migratory experiences of Gender Based Violence for one of the research subjects includes FGM.
