WIDE+ is very proud to launch its new project: “Strengthening Innovative Solutions to Protect Female Migrant and Refugee Rights”. This project is an opportunity to share realities and strategies organized migrant women in Europe are dealing with, build stronger networks and create new knowledges.
The project is supported [in part] by a grant from the Foundation Open Society Institute in cooperation with the Human Rights Initiative of the Open Society Foundations.
Two WIDE+ webinars and a blog online in our series for the project “innovative ways to protect migrant and refugee women’s rights”.
