The objective of the seminar is to explore ways to empower women, and to develop the untapped potential of migrant and refugee women in integration dynamics. A special focus on women is relevant, as women suffer the consequences of conflict and displacement differently. They are exposed to greater risks when displaced, or migrating in the search for safety or a better future. There is an increasing need for stronger gender mainstreaming in migration policies. The debate will draw from best practices in Italy, Malta and Jordan.
