Book Description

Between Systems and Violence offers a compilation and analysis of state-level statutes targeting IPV in IMR lives. The book analyzes such statutes’ legal language via various theoretical lenses, as well as provides a discussion of implications for research, prevention, intervention, and public policy.

Some immigrant and/or refugee (IMR) victim-survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV), such as those who are undocumented, may be pinned "between systems and violence" as violent partners use the immigration system as a mechanism of power and control. While protections are available for these victim-survivors, the story told about the encompassing legal landscape remains incomplete and relegated to federal law.

Graduate students, as well as scholars and practitioners, will acquire an in-depth understanding of this important nexus.
