#HEUNI_Tweetsday Weekly thread on Wednesdays. This month we'll reveal you the key findings from our latest project done w/@SOLWODI, @CIRRIFUGIATI, @JRSizbjeglice, @ENoMW and supported by @EU_Justice
Simple rules: 1❤– 1 finding. 1st topic: #GBV, its consequences & risk factors.
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice So what are we actually looking into when talking about #GBV against women? Is there any definition? And where to find it? Check out #IstanbulConvention coe.int/en/web/istanbu… #VAW #HumanRights #ViolenceAgainstWomen
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice #Refugee women have different backgrounds including different personal qualities, family situations, levels of education and professions. Refugee women do not form a homogenous group, and they definitely should not be seen as uninformed #victims.

Still processing the powerful discussion we had today in our #MA @ARUSociology session on #DecolonisingtheUniversity. A student shared her experiences of growing up in apartheid South Africa & feeling validated & 'seen' by the reading material. Became emotional as she talked
about how #apartheid affected her secondary & higher education in South Africa. Another shared his experiences of racism & racial abuse at his place of work in London, and how he'd envisioned a different kind of life in the UK when he migrated from Nigeria three years
ago. A third talked about being British in Zimbabwe and how her family had tried to convince her that the 'whites' were there to help the 'black people' and how she learnt to resist the 'civilising' narrative of #empire. A fourth discussed how her godfather rolled his eyes at her

As a #trauma researcher I often wonder why the fact that violence is squarely within the repertoire of normal human behavior is absent from the conversation among #academics and #culture observers more broadly. #whyisthat
Something deservedly undesirable in many contemporary contexts is not, as a result, abnormal.

Instead, I’d argue violence is often a maladaptive problem solving or #emotion regulation strategy.
But by dismissing violence as somehow aberrant, we make little progress in understanding root causes or intervening effectively.

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

On #ReligiousIntolerance and #violence:
A man was Lynched by a Mob in the Indian state of Jharkhand recently. His name was Ansari, that gave it way to his Hindu tormentors that he was muslim. They demanded that he chant "Jai Shree Ram!" independent.co.uk/voices/jai-shr…
Egregious examples of intolerance towards minority religions, mainly by Hindu mobs, underline the stark criticisms by the US Commission on International Religious Freedom of official apathy in the face of growing religious extremism in India.

»#YuriBezmenov may well go down in history as a #saint by the #survivors of the generations to come.

His statements about the global “#communist agenda” offers an opportunity for students of #history, #philosophy and #economics - world wide - to take note of #reality and to
..
.. reflect on the identity of their intellectual enemy, the dynamics of #capitalism in economics, and the role of #violence in politics.

Firstly, what is the “western identity”? From my understanding .. the #western identity has been shaped primarily by what it has resisted:
..
..
namely monarchic #despotism, authoritative #collectivism, and the infringement on the sovereignty of the #individual. You can even say that, to an extent, #Christianity itself followed from an already existing identity (i.e. the #Socratic divination of the individual).

It's 3 am when I'm typing this. A man just flashed me his dick in a fucking ATM! I had gotten down to withdraw money to pay the Rick and was I was facing problems and this guy offered to pay for it but he kept touching me, inside the ATM! I decided to record him and he...
panicked. Luckily there was a cop car, and I showed them the video and they followed him. I don't know if they caught him, but this experience was so scary. It's sick that a man felt that it was okay to flash me inside an atm where there are cameras! When is it going to stop?
It was my birthday, and this is what happens I've always felt that my locality was safe, apparently not.
Please share this.

[Part 1] Dear @Nigel_Farage, We have never seen eye to eye on Brexit, but people are entitled to have different opinions.

It appears you do not feel the same way about this though after threatening to pick up a rifle if you don’t get your way?!
[Part 2] As I mentioned to you before the use of this ill thought through, threatening language is incitement. I still believe you have blood on your hands for the murder of Jo Cox - you wound people up with provocative language that is not befitting of any MEP or MP.
[Part 3] Frankly, the only democratic thing to do now, largely because of illegal activity committed by you and your chums, is to have a confirmatory vote on Theresa’s deal. Suggesting if this happens people should take up arms is pathetic.

En direct ce vendredi du tribunal correctionnel de Creteil où un aide-soignant âgé de 57 ans est jugé pour « #violences sur personne vulnérable ayant entrainé une ITT supérieure à 8 jours ».
L’aide-soignant,employé dans 1 maison de #retraite d’Arcueil -le grand Cèdre- est soupçonné d’avoir giflé, insulté et tiré les cheveux d’une pensionnaire de 98 ans. La famille de la nonagénaire, qui soupçonnait des violences, avait placé une caméra dans la chambre de celle-ci.
Les images extraites de cette caméra, ont été visionnées par plusieurs personnes. Elles sont d'une "extrême #violence" selon une source proche du dossier.

This the last tweet I’m going to engage with specific #DezNat things. I’ll still call out hateful individuals, but really this is shite behavior. Don’t try and deny it.Most of y’all are homophobic, misogynistic, transphobic, racist individuals — whether you “think” you are or not
Feel free if you’ve received hate from #Deznat to post it here. I figure we need a thread about it. #callthemout
Jus because someone calls out your shitty behavior doesn’t make them hateful. @lennie_mennie And see how deftly he dismisses the harassment of feminists and the meme that was made? #misogyny

Nigeria’s 2019 Election:
What Are We Missing?
Vote buying. Thuggery. Rigged primaries. Logistical
failures. Official misconduct. Ballot box snatching.
Budget delays. Voter apathy. Intimidation. Turnout
suppression. Inconclusive results. Bribed officials
#NigeriaDecides2019
These and many other challenges routinely undermine the credibility and smooth conduct of elections in Nigeria.

🕵Message 2 #Patriots/#QAnons

The stage has been set for #Trump in 2020 and our #enemy knows it. [They] will do anything to stop it.

We know [they] want a #CivilWar and that [they] are trying to set it up. A #Trump2020 win will put [them] in an all or nothing position.
The only move they have left is civil war. Rip the #country apart and we wont look at [#them].

Watch your backs. Be ready for anything. See something say something.

The tables have been turned. We are #winning. [2020] is [their] #lastStand.
As we bring #DarkToLight, remember that it is always darkest before the #light.

Not only do [#they] know it's [their] last chance, [they] have the #sleepers convinced it's theirs.

Some people are only #enemy's because they are #trained to think #Patriots/#DigitalSoldiers are.

When did it become ok to promote violence against a child? Is it because the child is white or catholic? We have come along way to fulfilling #MLK’s dream to suddenly lose our way. #racism #Violence
This is dangerous very dangerous. No one has checked those asking for violence against a kid. Social media was on fire attacking this kid(s). Even tomorrow when the kid gives an interview many are attacking him. When does it stop?
Now the left hates this interview. These out of control adults on the left need to get a life. I will continue to calm them and their hypocrisy out every chance I get! Please join me. #SavanahGuthrie #CovingtonCatholicHighSchool

#Understanding is the only objective #rule.

#Observe and #Learn from other #people, make your own rules for your subjective #life. But never #impose your rules on others because ii will be a indirect #violence.
The person who follows #rules everywhere, he will be a #misfit.

He becomes like frozen ice.

#Rules creates #superficial #boundary.
#Rules can #change your #actions, your #behaviour to certain extent but it won't change you.

You are not you actions , you are not your behaviour. These are just on #periphery. You are much #deeper, the #centre. The changes in the periphery can't #bring change in the centre.

10 THINGS MEN CAN DO TO PREVENT GENDER VIOLENCE @threadreaderapp 1. Approach sexual harassment & forms of #gender #violence as a MEN’S issue involving men of all ages & socioeconomic, racial/ ethnic backgrounds. View men not only as possible offenders, but as empowered bystanders
2. DON’T REMAIN SILENT
If someone you know is abusing his partner – or is disrespectful or abusive to girls and women in general – try to talk to him about it. Urge him to seek help. Or if you don’t know what to do, consult a friend. #SpeakUp #BystanderIntervention
3. HAVE THE COURAGE TO LOOK INWARD
Question your own attitudes. Don’t be defensive when something you do or say ends up hurting someone else. Try hard to understand how your own attitudes & actions might inadvertently perpetuate sexism and violence, & work towards changing them.
