Gender, Migration and Trafficking in Europe

Co-organised with Symbiosis - Greece and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung - Cyprus Supported by Royal Norwegian Embassy - Greece and Cyprus

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 09:30-18:00 - Centre for Visual Arts and Research - 285 Ermou Street, Nicosia

The conference seeks to chart the links between migration and gender as they appear across Europe today. 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.
