MetadataShow full item record
This thesis uses the theoretical framework of intersectionality to research the refugee crisis in Greece. Specifically, it researches how female refugees and immigrants who stay in Greece face different forms of discrimination depending on their gender, race, and religion. Greece has a long history with immigration, while after 2011 and the Syrian civil war the numbers of refugee flows increased. This thesis studies the period between 2011 and 2020 while it also analyses the historical background of Greece as a host country and the Greek society regarding gender equality and sexism. Even though gender, race, and religious discrimination are divided and defined separately in order to analyse and research their roots in the Greek society, in fact, the thesis concludes that they cannot be separated because their interaction creates this different form of discrimination that these women face. This is exactly what is called intersectionality.
