1. Kamabu, Jane. Resettlement challenges among African refugee women living in Winnipeg.

Degree: Social Work, 2018, University of Manitoba

Abstract This thesis is a qualitative research on resettlement challenges among refugee women from African countries that have experienced war and civil strife. Recent studies have shown that the experience of being a newcomer in a foreign country tests the individual's resilience and coping resources to the limit. Using Urie Bronfenbrenner’s ecological perspectives and the Person-in-Environment theories, this research explores resettlement challenges that refugee women from Africa experience in new ecological contexts. Ecological theories stipulate that individuals are engaged in an on-going transaction with their environments; mutually influencing and being influenced, shaping and being shaped by the world around them (Probst, 2012). Using in-depth, semi-structured interviews, five participants were interviewed. The challenges they identified included struggles with language barriers, housing, finances, employment barriers, learning new parenting skills, and dealing with physical disabilities. Recommendations to alleviate the challenges included streamlined, well-co-ordinated services that are accessible and culturally responsive, as well as practices that are based on recognizing the refugee women’s strengths and involving them in decision-making processes. Key words: African refugee women in Winnipeg, Resettlement challenges, War, Civil Strife Advisors/Committee Members: King, Regine (Social Work), Wilkinson, Lori (Socialogy) (examiningcommittee).

2. Ganji, Ghorbanali. A Cross-National Study of the Correlates of Civil Strife in Middle Eastern Nations, 1960-73.

Degree: 1981, North Texas State University

The main objective of this research is to test some of the hypotheses linking economic development, social mobilization, legitimacy, and the coerciveness of the regime with internal political conflict. Each proposed hypothesis is to be tested across sixteen predominantly Islamic Middle Eastern nations for data from two time periods, 1960-66 and 1967-73. To check for the consistency and strength of the hypothesized relationships the test results for each hypothesis for the first period data will be compared with those of the second period. Advisors/Committee Members: Tate, C. Neal (Chester Neal), 1943-, Barnhart, Joe E., 1931-, Kamp, Henry Wilbur, 1922-, Thames, H. Stanley.

Subjects/Keywords: internal politcal conflict; civil strife; economic development; social mobilization; coerciveness of the regime; Government, Resistance to  – Economic aspects.; Government, Resistance to  – Social aspects.; Middle East  – Politics and government  – 1945-
