Résumé de la thèse

This research project brings together recent scholarly engagement on forced migration studies, political transnationalism,

and gender studies. It contributes to the debates on women's transnational activism in contexts of forced migration. Through

an intersectional perspective, I aim to understand how Colombian women mobilize specific resources and capitals in

transnational collective action in the experience of exile. Thus, my research questions are: How does intersectionality

determine the way women in exile position themselves as political activists? How do the transnational and local

dynamics influence their activism, creating new grammars of resistance and new forms of engagement? I plan to

conduct multi-sited ethnography using multi-modal methods in Geneva and Barcelona. In terms of academic relevance,

this research will expand the understanding of women’s political participation and transnational collective action through

their experience of forced migration.
