Suvi Keskinen, Ph.D.

Department of Women Studies
Senior researcher
2007-2008

My research focuses on violence to migrant women in families and the Finnish welfare state as a context for this. Firstly, I am interested in the narratives of abused migrant women, as well as how they negotiate identities and spaces for agency. Secondly, my research focuses on media representations, policy texts and professional practices that produce images of violence to migrant women and aim to tackle the issue. I analyse the construction of gender, 'race', ethnicity and nation in these discursive practices.
