Brussels, Belgium
Joined February 2016
Presence in: Belgium
Focus: Citizenship & Identification, Education, Family, Gender-based violence, Health, Labor & Employment, Livelihoods, Peace-building & Transitional Justice

The « European Network of Migrant Women and of Migrant Origin » has the assignment to bring to an achievement the respect of migrant women’s rights in the everyday life. To that end, women, drawing their inspiration from the research made by the workgroup « SRHR Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights » of the Commission on Women and Development (Consultative body of the Belgian Minister for Development Cooperation) wanted to remind that a certain number of particularly important juridical instruments already appear in the preamble. An overview of all the instruments that have been listed until now can be found at the end of the founding text.
Furthermore, the Network takes stock of the situation of immigrant women, among other in a matter of economical rights (access to employment, etc.), social rights (access to housing, to social care, etc.), political rights, cultural rights. It also strives to improve the knowledge and skills of immigrant and foreign-origin women, by permanently exchanging information with other women networks.
