Description

We are delighted to invite you to participate in the International Seminar “Migrant and Refugee Women’s integration and empowerment in Europe: Common challenges, good practices and opportunities for improved support”, on Friday 15th June 2018 in Rome, Italy.


The cost of attendance will be covered for a limited number, please RSVP as soon as possible.


The seminar will bring together iNGO, migrant and women rights experts, government representatives and other stakeholders working with MRW in the EU. This capacity building event will offer participants with the opportunity to share, develop and transfer effective practices, training and knowledge working with migrants and refugees.


This seminar is delivered as part of the Women’s Empowerment, Integration and Participation (WEIP) project, funded by the by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) European Commission programme. The Latin American Women’s Rights Service (LAWRS), based in the UK, is delivering this project in partnership with Red Acoge in Spain, Differenza Donna in Italy and KARAT Coalition in Poland.


MRW often experience discrimination on the basis of being women, members of an ethnic minority and because their immigration status. In recent years, there has been an alarming increase of negative stereotypes of MRW, hate crime, hostile environment policies across the EU, making it more urgent than ever to strengthen supporting organisations in order to provide appropriate responses.
