dc.description.abstractRefugee experiences of violence are well known and may include violence in the country of origin, in refugee camps, countries of detention and, especially for women and children, in their own families before and after resettlement. The resilience of former refugees to violence has been noted in recent times by a range of agencies. Across Australia, a number of initiatives are in place to deal with experiences of violence in these communities, including policing programs, settlement support services, community support groups and torture and trauma survival services. This paper will report on the preliminary findings of a qualitative project investigating the relationship between refugee women, violence and resilience in the context of resettlement. Focusing on interviews with service providers, the paper will explore how resilience is understood within, and may impact on, service provision.en_AU
