The modes and outcomes of interaction of (im) mobile Kurdish women with public space: a cross-cultural comparative study of different urban contexts

Project description

Examining Kurdish women interactions in public spaces in different urban contexts

In the literature, not much has been reported on Kurdish urbanism in general and women’s public space in particular, especially its socio-spatial implications for their everyday lives. This is especially important if we consider Kurdish women’s interaction in public space in a cross-cultural comparative study in different urban contexts. There are hardly any specific analyses concerning the modes and extent of Kurdish migrant women’s interaction in public space in European cities, particularly how this new spatial context affects their social lives and their empowerment. Consequently, this line of research requires more attention from both international and national contexts in order to understand the experiences, challenges and needs of these urban dwellers in design and production of inclusive urban public spaces.
