Workshop: Refugee communities: from within, not without. Methods for participatory consultation with displaced people.
May Maloney has kindly provided us with the links to the training slides, reports on the methodology, and information on the outcomes of dialogues with women she worked with.
The training slides are all on the University of New South Wales’ Centre for Refugee Research website. Can be referenced as the last set of slides on this site: crr.unsw.edu.au/education-and-training/training-resources/
Some people mentioned that they would like to see a copy of a report produced based on the methodology, which can be sourced at this URL (the Harda Report): crr.unsw.edu.au/research-projects/
For people who would like to know more about the outcomes of the women’s dialogues that May was involved in, check out the unofficial UNHCR Gender Unit Blog: itbeginswithme.wordpress.com/category/regional-dialogues-with-refugee-women-and-girls
