Preferences for Intervention and Prevention among Ultra- Orthodox Jewish Women Effected by IPV: An In-Depth Examination

Project description

Orthodox Jewish women abused by their partners

Intimate partner violence (IPV) against women is a global phenomenon, affecting all societies, cultures and religious groups. Recent research has focused on IPV against women members of ethnic groups, minorities and faith-based communities, such as the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community that is the most traditional stream of Orthodox Judaism. Hidden for decades, the phenomenon is now being raised. The EU-funded IPUOIPV project aims to achieve a better understanding of the specific needs of ultra-Orthodox Jewish women (UOJW) concerning common practices of IPV, including spiritual abuse. The project will explore priorities for intervention and prevention through 30 semi-structured face-to-face interviews and 5 focus groups of women from the ultra-Orthodox communities in Montreal and Israel, providing a model to study other neglected minority women.
