Project Archive for "Making Meaning of Gendered Violence and the Law: Global Discourses and Local Realities in Bangladesh”

This collection contains publicly-available research and broader impacts-related materials created by Esha Sraboni (Brown University, Sociology) for the Doctoral Dissertation Research (DDRI) project "Making Meaning of Gendered Violence and the Law: Global Discourses and Local Realities in Bangladesh” funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Award Number 1921059 from the Division of Social and Economic Sciences (SES) Law And Social Sciences (LSS) Program.

Bangladesh offers an opportunity to advance understanding of factors that shape women's decisions to access legal solutions in the case of violence. The country has made remarkable progress in gender equality initiatives, but violence against women is pervasive and women are limited in their access to justice. Moreover, the country has several systems of state and non-state legal fora that add an additional layer of complexity to understanding how individuals conceptualize justice in the case of violence against women. This project links the sociological literatures on law, gender, inequality and globalization, and uses ethnographic fieldwork in Bangladesh in one urban and one rural region with different legal fora, as well as archival analysis, to study the perceptions of a range of actors engaged in work relating to violence against women.
