Rising inequalities around the world, now exacerbated by the global coronavirus pandemic, heighten the need for strong, independent civil society–driven efforts to ensure rights‐based and gender‐responsive national and regional migration policies. To begin addressing this challenge, the Women in Migration Network (WIMN) partnered with the Friedrich Ebert-Stiftung (FES) to globally map organizations addressing the intersection of gender and migration.
As a network of migrant rights, feminist, labor, and faith organizations and activists from around theworld, WIMN has an nine-year history of bringing an intersectional feminist lens to global migration policy, drawing on international developments and trends as well as the regional specificities of our members and partners.
This mapping project aims to identify and learn from the work of those organizations addressing the intersection of gender and migration through front line response, research, advocacy, and mobilization. The project focuses on a mapping survey of more than three hundred organizations and networks and includes interviews with nineteen key movement leaders and organizations addressing the rights ofwomen in migration at the local, national, regional,and global levels.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
