GesellschaftspolitischeArbeit grossSocio-political work

FIM focusses it’s work on women, who are marginalised, migrants who have difficulties in representing their own concerns and fighting for their rights. Besides advising these women individually, FIM campaigns on the public and political level such as in working expert committees for enhancing the social position of migrant women and men and strengthening their rights.

Due to our longstanding experience and our profound knowledge in social work with migrant women, the FIM associates are often invited to discussions about migration, integration and violence against women.

Regularly we get requests by journalists, politicians, scientists, experts of different fields and students regarding the issues human trafficking, domestic violence, female genital mutilation, right of residency and our experience in counselling.

What are our goals?
Through public relations and advocacy work FIM seeks to strengthen women’s rights in politics and society as well as to promote political and social transforming processes in order to reduce violence against women in migration and enhance the integration processes.

Based on our practical experience in counselling migrant women our focus is on…:

  • Contributing to the fight against misogynist structures and assisting intercultural learning and integration processes,
  • Being conducive to the fight against discrimination, exploitation and racism,
  • Raising public awareness about structural problems in the context of “violence against women in the migration process”,
  • Promoting the exposure of social taboo issues and initiating a discussion,
  • Informing the policymakers about women’s right issues and advising them with our practical experience on the creation of political concepts regarding migration and women’s rights.
