Migrant women, determined development actors despite the odds!

On this day, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon welcomes “the chorus of voices calling for an end to the violence that affects an estimated one in three women in her lifetime”. Indeed, the facts are horrifying: 35% of women and girls globally experience some form of physical and or sexual violence in their lifetime with up to seven in ten women facing this abuse in some countries.

Over the past few decades many countries in Europe and elsewhere in the world have encountered major challenges related to migration and integration of immigrants. The 2016 Ruppin International Conference will focus on the evolving impact of migration on sending and host societies. Economic migrants, asylum seekers and refugees are on the move and researchers from various disciplines try to assess current migration and integration processes in the macro and micro perspective. What does the future hold? What are the future challenges related to these massive migration trends? What lessons are offered by past experience that can assist us in identifying responses for the future? The conference we will address and discuss these questions with researchers, policy makers and field experts from around the globe, touching upon various relevant areas of interest and inquiry but not limited to policy-making, education, employment and economy, health, culture and identity.

The Institute for Immigration and Social Integration at the Ruppin Academic Center in cooperation with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS) and the International Metropolis Project invites proposals for papers on a broad range of themes related to migration and integration- including an assessment for the future in the presented field:

Financial education for migrants and their families

Money remitted by international migrants is a major source of income for many countries around the world, exceeding all international development funds combined. Yet individual migrants and their families are often amongst the most vulnerable people in society, and many face significant barriers to the access and use of appropriate financial products.

The JMDI launches the project “Safer Remittances and Improved Livelihoods” project aimed enhancing the livelihoods status of seasonal migrant families and their communities.

According to the Nepalese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in 2013 more than 1500 Nepalese were leaving the country every day to work abroad. Therefore, Nepal has become one of the highest receivers of remittances, the second largest recipient in absolute amounts among least-developed countries (LDCs) after Bangladesh and the fifth largest recipient of remittances as a percentage of GDP in the world (World Bank).
