Promoting and strengthening asylum seeker, refugee and migrant women´s rights
Several events focusing on different aspects and issues related to gender and migration will be held in Brussels (Belgium) on 6, 7 and 8 March 2018. These activities are organised by Le Monde selon les femmes in cooperation with WIDE+ in the framework of two projects co-financed by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and the Open Society Foundations.
(July 2017) With Agenda 2030, governments have pledged to advance gender equality and empower women and girls.
At the same time, they have committed to strengthening international trade and using it as a means to finance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a way that is consistent with existing commitments, including those on women´s rights, and that respects each country´s right to implement policies for sustanaible development.
WIDE+ Gender and Trade 2017 Position Paper
It argues that current EU external trade policy is fundamentally harmful to the human rights of women, men and children and to the preservation of our planet.
Its neoliberal core makes livelihoods more precarious, enhances inequalities, fosters financialisation of the economy, reduces access to medicines, undermines food sovereignty, and threatens environmental sustainability.
