„Muslim Women Across Europe – Voices From Behind the Veil“

Project period: 2001 – 2002

An internet project of the University of Nottingham.

The three projects, which operate in practice interviewed clients about their life situations and their experience with violence and created five anonymised curriculum vitae ( life stories) and put them online. The University of Nantes provided the technical expertise for dealing with the Internet.

In conclusion an exchange of experience took place between countries with conferences in Amsterdam, Paris and Nottingham, which enabled wider public dissemination. The goal was to sensitise expert staff about the situations and experiences of their clients.
