The GIPS Project

Project Description

The Gender, (Im)mobilities, and Precarious Situations (GIPS) project is an action-research initiative addressing the challenges faced by migrant women in extended precarious situations in Canada (Québec) and Lebanon, considering the intersection of gender inequalities. A collaboration between the Université de Montréal and the Asfari Institute at the American University of Beirut, the project is feminist, transnational, decolonial, and inclusive. Focused on ethical research and intervention practices during crises, it emphasizes the experiences and strategies of migrant women and partner organizations.
