dc.description.abstract This presentation is based on extensive research with Iraqi women refugees in Jordan during 2007 and 2008. It traces the causes that prompted the women to leave Iraq after 2003. It also traces the transition they went through and the economic, social, and political challenges they currently face as urban refugees in Jordan. Nusair analyzes the gendered and sexual politics of their status as women refugees and the response of the Iraqi and Jordanian governments to their plight. She also analyzes the response of the United Nations as well as national and international aid organizations to their needs. Finally, the presentation examines women's coping mechanisms and networks of support and the ways these women are negotiating with conditions of extreme dislocation and instability in their lives. en_US
