Project Number : 2013/01

Type of the Project : Research Study

Date of Commencement : 2013

Date of Completion :

Funded by : Edith Cowan University

The research focuses on women who have been employed in the formal sector of the economy and returned to a ‘traditional’ community. The community and society in which the female participants live will also be the focus of the research as it has been found in other studies that women in developing nations experience complex forces of societal scorn and community subjugation, juxtaposed with economic empowerment, all of which occur simultaneously. The study is a mixed methods research design that uses a questionnaire, focus groups, observation and interviews (with key stakeholders). Research locations are Awissawella, Colombo, Embilipitiya, Galle, Gampaha, Kalutara,  Kandy, Kurunegala , Monaragala and Ratnapura
