Lobbying Toolkit and Video Clips on Family Reunification
The European Network of Migrant Women (ENoMW) – in cooperation with the European Women’s Lobby and the International Centre for Migration Policy Development – hosted a briefing in the European Parliament in November 2011 about the ongoing consultation on the European Commission’s Green Paper on the EU Family Reunion Directive 2003/86/EC. The ENoMW has declared its intention to actively participate in the upcoming consultation.
A lobbying toolkit and three short video clips highlighting various aspects of the family reunification challenge and its effect on migrant women have been produced by the ENoMW and the European Women’s Lobby, with EPIM funding. The video clips were launched on 13th January 2012, and are available to view here. They tell the stories of three migrant women – Liz, Saheli and Claudia – and highlight the main challenges that migrant women face due to the lack of gender sensitivity in migration policies, in particular family reunification policies.
