Sexual violence, as a human rights and public policy issue, has emerged as a critical area of scholarly inquiry in local and global contexts. Dr. Debotri Dhar will explain how studies by the World Health Organization, World Bank, and others point to the macroeconomic impact of gender-based violence on survivors’ health and well-being as well as on public budgets, through healthcare expenditures, legal services, and diminished educational outcomes. Does financial inclusion and equitable access to care change women’s experiences of sexual violence in private and public? How do we assess policies which empower women by eliminating lending bias, but which purportedly frame women as vulnerable rather than as risk-taking, ensuring sexual/financial safety through stereotypically female workspaces? Drawing from a mixed-methods study of rape victims’ public suicides in postcolonial India, Dr. Dhar will explore the insights it can offer to our gendered understandings of violence, vulnerability and risk, and discuss innovative policy measures.
The Center on Finance, Law & Policy’s “blue bag lunches” aim to foster interdisciplinary collaborations and showcase the work being done at the University of Michigan on issues related to finance, law, and policy. Faculty and graduate students are welcome to present research related to finance, law, and policy at any stage at these monthly events – from general questions and ideas, to works-in-progress, to published work.

Blue Bag Lunches are generally held on the first Thursday of each month from Noon – 1:00 p.m. For the fall semester, these will take place in the Law School's Jeffries Hall, Room 1060.
