What if we change the lens through which we perceive women of refugee background?

Hear about women’s experiences of entrepreneurship and their strategies to overcome the obstacles of becoming economically self-sufficient in Australia and Brazil. This anthropological study looks at the construction of refugees as victims and vulnerable individuals and examines the effects it has on women’s ability to rebuild their livelihoods through entrepreneurship.

Speaker: Juliana Lobo de Queiroz, PhD Candidate, Swinburne Institute for Social Research
