EWL Calls On European Decision-Makers To Support Gender-Sensitive Family Reunification Policies (15/06/12)

….. the main demands of EWL joint campaign with the European Network of Migrant Women (ENoMW) for gender-sensitive family reunification policies:

  1. Stop creating dependence and instead facilitate autonomous residence for family members, especially vulnerable persons such as migrant women affected by domestic and /or other violence;
  2. Change the conditions that impact disproportionately on migrant women as spouses and family members;
  3. Change integration requirements that result in the exclusion of poorer and less educated migrant women;
  4. Change sponsorship requirements that disproportionately impact on women affected by multiple discrimination in society and the labour market.
