An intersectional approach to lived experiences of domestic and family violence within the Korean Diaspora of Australia
This thesis examines the lived experiences of Korean diasporic women who have experienced domestic and family violence (DFV) in Australia. Using participant observation and interviews with 15 victim-survivors and 16 DFV-related practitioners and community volunteers, this thesis explores the Korean women’s transnational experiences of seeking support while simultaneously negotiating the patriarchal values and practices of their homes, community, diasporic society, and states. By applying an intersectional approach, the analysis shows how the lack of structural support, combined with other cultural and practical influences put them at greater risk for DFV and further complicate their decision to leave their violent relationships.
