Emily is a senior PhD Candidate in Sociology.
The working title of her thesis is:
' The Silencing of Conflict-Related Sexual Violence Survivors in the post-Yugoslav Space '.
Emily's PhD project seeks to: identify social silencing mechanisms faced by survivors of conflict-related sexual violence in the post-Yugoslav region (focusing on Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, and Kosovo); interpret how these silencing mechanisms impact survivors' ability to give voice to their lived experiences of sexual violence during conflict; and assess how a minority of survivors overcome these silencing mechanisms.
