The European Network of Migrant Women (ENoMW) promotes equal treatment, equal rights and better integration for migrant women in Europe. The ENoMW is a relatively young, but visible at the EU level network, comprised of a balanced mixture of grass-roots organizations, migration and gender studies think tanks and national councils and federations of migrant women led and/or migrant women oriented organizations, across 17 of the 28 EU Member states, with reach in 20 countries. MIGS has been an active member of the Network since its inception and Anna Zobnina, MIGS associate is currently the Chair of the ENoMW’s Board.

ENoMW is the only pan-European network led entirely by migrant women and focusing specifically on addressing the problems and concerns of migrant women population within the EU, as well as bringing attention to migrant women’s activities and contributions across the European Union. The network aims to promote the empowerment of all migrant women in the European Union and uses a wide range of expertise among its members to work towards a synchronicity of efforts with which to positively influence the EU agenda. Its key priorities are better integration of migrant women, access to labour, health and justice for migrant women, preventing and combatting violence against women.

The ENoMW has the distinction of being a migrant-led organisation with an expert understanding of the intersecting inequalities of being migrants and women. The two main objectives of the EPIM grant are to establish the ENoMW as a proactive and visible political stakeholder at the EU policy level and to develop advocacy strategies for the integration and social inclusion of migrant women to be included in the legal framework of the EU.

The network intends to provide regular input in all areas of EU policy development and implementation that have an impact on migrant women’s lives. This means helping to shape social policies and design action programmes addressing migrant women’s specific needs, by lobbying for and with migrant women at the European level  and supporting migrant women’s national organisations and movements through information and trainings.
