Young Immigrant Women in Cyprus and the Consequences of the Pandemic
The Center for Gender Equality and History (KIIF) implements the research project The Consequences of the Pandemic to Young Migrant Women: Experiences, Thoughts, and Suggestions. The project is funded by the Youth Board of Cyprus, under the program “ReCOVer20” which aims to support young people in Cyprus to act for the confrontation of the consequences of the COVID pandemic. The implementation of the project started on July 2020 and is expected to be completed by November 2020. The aim is to put some light to the experiences and the needs of young immigrant women who live in Cyprus in regard to the pandemic and its consequences. The intent is to identify the problems, and even the opportunities, which may have emerged due to the pandemic and its consequences, may this refer to situations such as social isolation, online communication, solidarity networks, and any other situations caused in the context of this crisis. Our wish is that young immigrant women who will participate in the research will be able to present their views and promote their suggestions and demands. The research includes the distribution of a questionnaire to 100 immigrant women between 18 and 35 years old who live in Cyprus and the implementation of six interviews with immigrant women of the relevant age group. After the completion of the research, KIIF will organise a public discussion (online) to present and discuss the results with immigrant women and stakeholders. The research team coordinating the project consists of the social researchers, Thekla Kyritsi and Eleni Pashia.
News and updates in regard to the progress of the research and the public event will be announced here as well as in the Facebook page of the Center for Gender Equality and History (https://www.facebook.com/kiif.cy).
