Ilana Seff

Research Assistant Professor, Brown School

My research agenda focuses on improving the lives of vulnerable and marginalized populations (including those impacted by intersecting systems of racism, xenophobia, sexism, and Islamophobia) across the globe using evidence-based solutions. My broad research experience and interests include the prevention of violence against women and girls, particularly in humanitarian settings, social norms related to violence, and the psychosocial well-being and mental health of refugees and displaced populations. Over the past couple years, my work has increasingly focused on the racialization of refugees in Europe and the U.S., with an aim to better understand determinants and opportunities for intervention across multiple levels of the social ecology.
