Als Beitrag zum Sustainable Development Goal #5 „Gender Equality“ der Vereinten Nationen haben wir das diesjährige MAXQDA #ResearchforChange-Stipendium dem Empowerment von Frauen und Mädchen in den Bereichen wirtschaftliche, soziale, politische, kulturelle, rechtliche und ökologische Teilhabe gewidmet. Die Gleichberechtigung von Männern und Frauen spielt eine wichtige Rolle in allen Dimensionen der Entwicklung. Aus diesem Grund wird die VERBI GmbH Nachwuchswissenschaftler:innen, die in diesem Bereich forschen, mit drei Forschungsstipendien im Gesamtwert von je $1,650.00 unterstützen.

The Meeting Point: A Visual Arts Investigation into Understanding Diaspora, Migration Embodiment
Have you ever been scared to walk somewhere alone because something can happen to you on your way there? Unfortunately, many women in different cities all over the globe experience this fear on the daily basis. This is the issue of limited mobility due to having the „fear of crime“, which cannot be simply cured by any simple protective actions. This problem should be addressed on the city level in order to create an environment where women have power and freedom to live in their cities, to do what they want and not have a fear for life constantly on the back of their minds while going somewhere alone. In order to do so, the implementation of Smart City technology to create safer environments is a promising area to look at, because even having such things as good surveillance coverage of the city has already proved to be helpful in reducing the “fear of crime” that women experience. This project aims to understand better, what actually makes women feel safer in the city and how technology can help with that. And beyond – what are the differences between women’s expectations from Smart City solutions for safety in the different parts of the world. Follow Margarita on LinkedIn, Twitter or Instagram.
Girls with disabilities can be found in all human civilizations. Between 93 million and 150 million children live with a disability worldwide. In many cities in low and middle-income countries (LMICs), girls with disabilities (GWDs) are invisible and unheard. They suffer from multiple discrimination and inequality in all spheres of human endeavor due to gender and disability. Sadly, 9 out of 10 GWDs do not go to school, while just about 1% are literate across cities in LMICs. In Nigeria, to be specific, a significant 95% of GWDs do not attend school at all, while less than 5% of those who have made it to primary school find it difficult to complete their education. Interestingly, GWDs have a right to education without discrimination as enshrined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), SDG 4, among others. Despite this, the participation rate in education for GWDs remains significantly poor across cities in LMICs. The lack of inclusive and safe mobility options remains a significant barrier that affects the educational attainment of GWDs in cities of LMICs. This study seeks to shed light on the mobility barriers and needs of public school GWDs in Benin City, Nigeria. Follow Stanley on ResearchGate, LinkedIn, Instagram or Twitter.

María delves into the concept of political participation of indigenous women in two localities that have different degrees of community autonomy: Cherán K’eri (p’urhépechas women) and México City (Mazahuas, Otomís and Mazatecas women). This study has four purposes: First, to understand and describe how political participation is defined from the perspective of indigenous women themselves, and how they have participated in decision-making in their communities; Second, to expand the concept of political participation including the results of the first objective, showing that the political participation of indigenous women goes far beyond holding public office, and that it can be understood in broad terms, for example, despite not being framed in conventional political participation, women have been triggering organizational processes that in one way or another are linked to important decision-making in their communities; Third, to identify the obstacles that women face in exercising this right, and to explore what their strategies have been to overcome them, as well as which public policy proposals arise from their voices in order to promote greater participation by women; And fourth, to analyze what role the contexts of greater or lesser autonomy of their respective communities play on the level of political participation of women.

There is an eminent issue that is facing women migrants and that is lack of authentic representation. There is to focus on the external physical ramifications of their experience i.e. displacement, social impact, social struggles, but there is dire a need to examine the internalized psychological and emotional struggles that they experience. The reality of living with the ‚divergent body‘ deriving from a background of conflict, at times can be unbearable. It is incredibly difficult to express how having such a story can impact the self-identity and self-image of someone who is trying to settle in a new location. My research aims to enlighten the public on what it is genuinely like to endure hardship as a female migrant and shares not only some artists stories, but to understand more deeply what women from diaspora endure.This analysis will be achieved through exploring various elements of the female-migrant experience from examining the values, autonomy, epistemic injustice, and perceptions of reality someone perceives, what it is like to live in a mind and body that come from a background of conflict. These experiences will be investigated through “The Embodied Experience”, one living with and through migrant identity through the art. My intention is to enlighten on the diverse realities of the female migrant experience and examine how both the individual and the artistic voice contributes to our cultural comprehension of what migrants endure, and how art can capture some of the darker realities behind diaspora. Thus, this research aims to bring together these divergent bodies and experiences and to provide a critical overview of the depth of struggle people endure with migration, and their correlation.
