Marriage, Gender and Refugee Migration

Spousal Relationships among Somali Muslims in the United Kingdom

Rutgers University Press

This ethical and poetical ethnography analyzes the upheavals to gender roles and marital relationships brought about by refugee migration to the UK. Unmoored from the socio-cultural norms that made them men and women, Somali migrants find "everything" to be "different, mixed up, upside down." The book finds that the most significant catalysts for challenging harmful gender practices are a combination of the welfare system and Islamic praxis.
