Project "Equal Rights. Equal Voices. Migrant Women in the EU"

The EWL has been running a project since 2006 for and with migrant women’s organisations across Europe that aims to actively involve migrant women’s organizations in the development, monitoring and implementation of policies at the European level: ’Equal Rights. Equal Voices. Migrant Women in the European Union’. One of the main achievements of this project has been the launch on 18 June 2010 of the European Network of Migrant Women, an independent network that is since 2009 an EWL Associate Member. The project has been supported by the European Programme for Integration and Migration (EPIM) of the Network of European Foundations, as well as the Sigrid Rausing Trust and Barrow Cadbury Trust.
