Lobbying kit on EU directive for family reunification: what is at stake for migrant women?

  • PDFImprimerEnvoyer

In the context of the European Commission public consultation on the right to family reunification, aiming at collecting opinions on how to have more effective rules on family reunification at EU level, the European Network of Migrant Women (ENoMW) and the European Women’s Lobby (EWL) have launched a lobbying campaign that calls for gender-sensitive EU policies on the issue.

Namely, the ENoMW and the EWL have produced a Lobbying Kit that helps organisations and individuals to get involved, providing useful background information and offering several tools to effective lobbying for EU family reunification policies that uphold the rights and meet needs of migrant women. The campaign highlights all the restrictions already faced by applicants from third-country nationals with regard to family reunification, confirming that family members’ access to autonomous permits is a weakness in most countries. As a matter of fact, although the Directive was meant to promote better integration of migrants and guarantee their right to reunite with their families, the EU member states have not yet implemented the Directive properly.
