Interpretation in English/Spanish/French/Arabic/Russian
Beginning with the root causes of displacement risk, how these are structured by gender and other relations of inequality, and how the climate crisis exacerbates these risks, we will look at women’s rights in migration and displacement, in contexts of both internal and international movement.
We’ll share how despite these challenges migrant women are leading with resilience, creating frontline models of solidarity.
