NIWF is currently participating in The Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law, and Development (APWLD) 1st Regional Training on Feminist Participatory Action Research for Human Rights of Women Migrants (Migration FPAR 2022-2024). The training is being held from 12-16 October in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Nuva Ruchhengbung Bantawa Rai, Young Researcher, and representative to NIWF demonstrated her presentation on the second day based on ‘Migration; Where are the Indigenous Women?’ This presentation was done on Indigenous Women and their linkage with FGMP (Fundamentalism, Globalization, Migration, and Patriarchy).
The slogan for FPAR is “Building knowledge and movement from the ground up. Women migrants fight for human rights and migration justice”. Through the course of the FAR journey, APWLD and its partners will investigate and document the situation and the challenges faced by women migrants in the face of the political, economic, and health crisis. The FPAR will also facilitate the partners to develop plans to demand system change for the human rights of women migrants and migration justice.
