Ahmed and Global Studies students publish on gender-based violence against Rohingya women

Saleh Ahmed, an assistant professor in the School of Public Service, published an article in the March 3 edition of the journal Ethnicities. Gender-based violence in a complex humanitarian context: Unpacking the human sufferings among stateless Rohingya women. Boise State Global Studies students Grace Priddy, Zoe Doman and Emily Berry were co-authors.

Ahmed and the students analyzed various multidimensional aspects of gender-based violence against stateless Rohingya women in Myanmar and in Bangladesh. In addition to providing the landscape of gender-based violence, the authors provided possible solutions to improve the situation.

Though this article has a geographical and population focus, it also provides a broader understanding and perspectives of gender-based violence and possible strategies for remedy in various humanitarian contexts.
