A space for the exchange of co-development practices promoting migrants as citizens and actors of      development here and there.

*

After three years of work and reflection and the support off the European Women's Lobby, the European Network of Migrant Women was officially launched in Brussels.

Eunomad has attended the workshop, held June 18, 2010, in the European economic and social Committee, with the support of the European Programme of Integration and Migration (EPIM) of the Network of European Foundations. The network’s objectives are to:

  • promote equal treatment and a better integration of migrant women in Europe,
  • contribute to all aspects of the policy agenda of the EU as it affects and impact the life of migrant women,
  • shape social policies that answer the needs of migrants,
  • provide capacity building support to migrant women organisations.

The seminar highlighted the contributions and practices of migrant’s women’s organisations in support of integration strategies in Europe. It has also enabled exchanges with EU policy makers notably on matters related to non discrimination, equality between men and women and migration and integration policies.

Eunomad has interfaced with members of the European Network of Migrant Women, especially "Fatima" - Forum Advocacy Training, Information Multicultural Arena (UK). - and the European Women's Lobby. A follow up meeting is scheduled soon between this organisation and Eunomad.
