The SOLiDi consortium and the University of Humanistic Studies are looking for a talented and motivated researcher to join the International Training Network and write a PhD on solidarity in diversity.
Within the European Training Network on promoting solidarities across ethnic-cultural boundaries we have a vacancy for a PhD position at the University of Humanistic Studies in Utrecht, the Netherlands:
Competing solidarities: Sexual justice versus cultural justice in social work?
Social workers are increasingly confronted with culturally inspired (risk of) family violence in families of migrant background. This project studies social workers’ encounters with these harmful gender and sexuality related practices, the moral dilemmas these create for professionals and clients and professionals’ actual interventions. Research methods include case file analysis and in-depth study of ten cases in two Dutch neighborhoods. The aim is to improve the quality of intervention in these harmful practices.
Applications can be sent to the University of Humanistic Studies
