PROJECT TITLE: VIW VOICES OF IMMIGRANT WOMEN – Erasmus + Strategic Partnership for Higher Education



The VIW project aims to answer to the need of students of developing better knowledge and awareness toward the theme of woman migrations considering the interrelation of factors such as: gender, status, ethnicity, age, religion, origin, political opinion.


The project activities are articulated around three main outputs:

  • Output 1: Mapping of 60 Case Studies and Success Stories on integration of immigrant women in 6 countries across Europe: the project will provide University students (as well as policy makers and society at large) with a wider awareness and comprehension of their civic and social role related to migrant women integration.
  • Output 2, a transnational and interdisciplinary training program on "Human Mobility, Integration and Gender", the project will achieve relevant results in terms of promoting the acquisition by higher education students of knowledge, skills and transversal competences, related to cultural diversity and gender issues of migrant women. The e-learning course will prepare higher education students of social sciences as well as of other subjects, as mentioned above, to deal with migrant women integration combating discrimination, segregation, racism, bullying and violence.
  • Output 3, Policy Recommendation, the project will provide a set of practical oriented intervention proposal to policymakers involved at all level in Higher education and integration of migrants policies. A final publication will be produced and will focus on issues such as migrant women needs and successful integration interventions, promoting university students awareness and civic and social responsibility towards migrant women integration, cooperation between Higher Education institutions and third sector in relation to immigrant women integration, overcoming obstacles to the integration of migrant women within the Higher education system to make it more inclusive.
