Ms
Allison
Petrozziello,
This article discusses the ways babies born to migrant and refugee women are being excluded from birth registration and calls for rights defenders to recognize and resist these practices. It focuses on the Dominican Republic’s denial of birth certificates for people of Haitian descent, and an action-research project aiming to facilitate access to the Dominican civil registry for children of mixed-status couples (Haitian migrant mother and Dominican father).

Digital technologies are increasingly being used as tools for the perpetration of domestic violence. Little empirical research to date has explored the nature and impacts of technology-facilitated domestic violence, and even less attention has been paid to the experiences of immigrant and refugee women. This article examines the nature and impacts of technology-facilitated domestic violence as experienced by immigrant and refugee women.

Jaimie
Veale,
Our findings illustrate the stark contrast and health inequities between trans and non-binary people and the general population, especially in the areas of mental health and wellbeing, including the very high rates of psychological distress and suicide attempts within our communities.

El Baradei,
SDG 16 has many politically sensitive indicators, which is allowing governments (in this case – Egypt) to not self-report accurately. Including quantifiable targets and indicators for the SDGs helps citizens hold their governments accountable for the implementation of all the promises governments make to its citizens.

Gender & Women's Rights

Dr.
Andrew
Delatolla,
It is important to acknowledge the colonial dimension of the governance of (homo)sexuality. By doing so, practitioners gain a nuanced understanding of LGBTQ+ communities in the global south and they avoid perpetuating the harmful binary understanding of the world as consisting of ‘civilised’ and ‘uncivilised’ peoples or regions.
