Gender is central to any discussion of the causes and consequences of regular and irregular migration and forced displacement. The power dynamics and types of violence associated with migration have also been gendered. Today, with Europe experiencing the effects of the radical changes in refugee movements since 2015, the links between gender, migration, and the violence they entail needs to be asked anew, at the national, local and European levels, in policy making as well as implementation. The conference taking place Friday, 29th September 2017 explores in which way the categories gender and migration appear across Europe today and how to link the two.

The panels’ topics will be

  • Movements of Populations in the Mediterranean and European Responses
  • Gender and Migration Today / Women Migrants and the City
  • Violence against Refugee Women
  • Current Responses and Challenges in Anti-Trafficking Efforts
