Back Research Consultant: Women Socio-economic Marginalisation - Oxfam Iraq

  • Added Date: Wednesday, 07 February 2018
  • Deadline Date: Tuesday, 13 February 2018

Exploring emerging forms of socio-economic marginalization of women and adolescent girls in post-ISIS’ Iraq

Background

This affiliation results from a family member, most often a male, who joined ISIS (even if forced recruitment), or who had no choice but to live or remain behind in locations ruled by ISIS such as those with low economic capability, or women and girls forced into marriage to ISIS members. If in a family, the father joined ISIS and the mother divorced him, the children would still be accused of affiliation, as would the wife and sister. However, this categorisation affects adolescent and young women explicitly through marriage to ISIS fighters, who, despite being increasingly able to divorce from their husbands once they fled, are still associated with ISIS. Consequently, these (young) women are not trusted and are unable to engage with their respective communities, in work or activities. For more information please see the attached job profile

Purpose

To collect evidence on the new forms of marginalisation of the women and adolescent girls who were affected by the conflict with ISIS.
