Researchers and Civil Society to Discuss Migrant Women in the Mediterranean

What are the possible bridges between the work of gender specialists and that of associations? How can we envisage the articulation between research and active fieldwork? These are some of the questions that the seminar "Promoting Dialogue between Researchers and Actors of Civil Society: The Issue of Migrant Women", intends to answer in Marseille, France on February 16, 2018. The event is to reflect on the relationship between the world of academia and that of associations and actors in the field. 

As a case study, this seminar will focus on the issue of migrant women and their struggles for empowerment and emancipation. The study on migration processes makes it possible to identify different categories of migrant women and their diverse backgrounds: Migration routes, life courses or career paths. This event also aims to understand the evolution of recent female migrations in the Mediterranean. 

This meeting with actors working with migrant women will open a debate on the following questions: How does research contribute to building knowledge about migrant women? How can it build on the actions and experience of associations working with migrant women? What are the consequences of this approach for this target population? 

It should be noted that the universities of Côte d’Azur, Aix-Marseille and Hassan II will be represented at the event, as well as various associations and institutions, such as Forum Femmes Méditerranée (FFM), Femmes d’ici et d’ailleurs, Ancrages, or the Museum of Civilizations of Europe and the Mediterranean (MUCEM).

It should also be noted that following the seminar, participants will be able to visit the exhibition “Gender, migration and activism”, co-produced by Ancrages and the archives of the Bouches-du-Rhônes county. 

The seminar is organized by the Euro-Mediterranean University and Scientific Network on Gender and Women (RUSEMEG) within the framework of Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacity of equality actors" of the project "Women of the future in the Mediterranean" Funded by the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs (MEAE) and with the support of the University Aix-Marseille. It is in synergy with the mission of the FFEM and the project "Developing the autonomy of women", labeled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
