Gender, Migration and Security Security concerns of female refugees from Eritrea and the Horn of Africa

Freitag, 13. Oktober 2017, 15:00 - 17:00

kostenlos

In this panel discussion we seek to explore the term „security” from the perspective of female refugees from the Horn of Africa, specifically from Eritrea. Human rights violations and security concerns are reasons for women to flee or migrate from the Horn of Africa region, and security issues are most relevant for women on the road, in refugee camps, in transit and host countries. But how do international and European policies respond to migrant and refugee women´s security concerns?
The speakers will highlight neglected dimensions of the thematic cluster “migration and security”, which is too often merely seen from the perspective of European border control. The contributions of the activists from the Network of Eritrean Women (NEW) and other experts will reveal some of the contradictions between the democratic, humanitarian and gender-equality related claims of Europeans and the experiences of women who flee their countries. They will also discuss how to protect and promote women´s rights.
In the discussion with the audience we hope to inspire solidarity and hear about ideas and proposals for alternative action for civil society and politics.
