Conference: Iraqi Women, Between Home and Diaspora.: June 15, 2016
The MEP and the Iraqi Transnational Collective are pleased to invite you to a conference to discuss about the tensions and pressures that Iraqi women are facing in Iraq or abroad, on Tuesday, June 28, 2016, at 18:00.
If the Iraqi diaspora spread across the world, women still do not have the political representation they hoped internationally. London hosting the largest community of the Iraqi diaspora, speakers will examine the role of women in the United Kingdom, namely in a western way of life where feminism is becoming stronger.
Chaired by Zeynep Kaya, a researcher fellow at the London School of Economics (LSE), the conference will also be hosted by:
Nadje Al-Ali, professor of gender studies at SOAS, University of London.
Sara Al-Saraf, storyteller working with diaspora communities.
Nadia Mohammed, poet and researcher at Kings College London.
Nazli Tarzi, multimedia journalist and researcher specializing on Iraqi culture.
Free and open Conference.
Tuesday, June 28, 2016, from 18:00 to 20:00 - London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street, London WC2A 2AE, United Kingdom.
