Sujet de thèse

“Gender, Morality and Self- Accomplishment : A Study of Middle- Class Divorced Women in Nairobi”
sous la direction de Valerie Golaz (INED, LPED) et de Yvan Droz (IHEID, Geneva)
Description du projet This research will look at how divorced women navigate the conflict that divorce brings to the relationships within their social networks : the church, family, friends, among others, in terms of moralities and their social status as well as investigate how their choices put their personal wealth (financial autonomy) at risk. I will use a blend of two qualitative methodologies, namely, the phenomenological and ethnographic approach where I will conduct in-depth interviews with the women as well as observe the participants in their churches, families, and social circles.
