Objective of the Project

The project focuses on middle aged and older women, migrants, as they have to face a greater risk of discrimination compared to men and other women from both the majority and minority of society. The goal is to equalize their social standing, limit vulnerability and strengthen rights in the social sphere. We want to track the success rate of their integration and test whether even in this case the principles applied to the major part of the female population can be applied. We will delineate the topic of gender in migration and its specifics in this age group to the public, we will strengthen the cooperation between organizations which deal with this topic. We will fight for change in the legislation and practice. A set of activities will lead towards these goals: qualitative research, review of public politics, course of social work for students, campaign or legal and social counseling. The outcome will be a publication for the public, monothematic number of the Charles University magazine, analysis of politics, evaluation report, internet blog, manuals for the migrants, social spot, articles, reportages and shows in the media.
