Abstract
  • This project is based on an ethnographic study done in Zaatari Refugee Camp, a Syrian refugee camp based in Mafraq, Jordan. Through centering women's voices and engaging with first-hand accounts of the Syrian refugee crisis, this thesis explores what life for Syrian refugee women is like in the aftermath of the destruction of the Syrian Civil War. The research question driving this project is: How have health care services from the international aid community changed refugee women's economic mobility, religiosity, and gender dynamics? In answering this question, I use a feminist approach to consider the complex, nuanced, and multi-faceted lived experiences of Syrian women living in Zaatari refugee camp.
