I will explore the experiences of migrant women and girls in Wales regarding violence, which
could range from domestic abuse to sexual violence. In collaboration with BAWSO and Wales
Strategic Migration Partnership, this study aims to map strategies that will co create a gender
sensitive and comprehensive plan of support services.
Mixed methods will be used to document these experiences.
Key questions to be addressed by the research include:

1. What are the experiences of domestic abuse and sexual violence among migrant women
and girls in Wales?
2. To what extent does violence against migrant women and girls vary with age, ethnicity,
sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status in Wales?
3. What solutions can tackle these experiences? What recommendations do at risk or
affected women and girls have?
