WIMN Launches Global Mapping Project on Gender & Migration

Women in Migration Network (WIMN) is partnering with Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) to map organizations and experts addressing the intersection of gender and migration through research, advocacy and mobilization. 

At this critical time for migration — especially in the throes of the global pandemic, this initiative will help to identify key organizations and leaders addressing the rights of women in migration at the local, national, regional and global levels. Importantly, the survey will also help to name allies within other sectors — such as labor, climate change, women’s rights, LGTBIQ rights — with whom to build cross-sectoral alliances. The survey aims to assess how these organizations are responding to the current Covid-19, and how the lives of women in migration are impacted by the pandemic.

The project will map organizations and experts by region (divided into the Americas; Europe; Africa- MENA, Asia and the Pacific), laying the basis for future regional and global organizing within the context of migration governance, women’s rights movement, labor organizing and in other relevant sites of intervention. 

The survey, available in English and in Spanish, will also assess organizations’ practical and strategic needs and priorities. Finally, drawing from the results of the survey and a series of in-depth interviews with key regional stakeholders, the project will produce a report on regional trends and actors on gender and migration.
