Masooma Torfa as an EU-ambassador

EU-Projects

Since successful integration is also an international issue, we are involved in EU-wide panel discussions on migration and integration in addition to our local tandem projects.

Masooma Torfa is doing her Ph.D on the topic of social economical aspects of international migrationat the University of Hohenheim and also coordinates the Female Fellows Tandem Project in Bietigheim-Bissingen. She brings with her a competent professional background and at the same time has practical experience. She is therefore the perfect person to have a say in this!

  • Women in general, if compared with men, have a disadvantage in terms of the responsibility of Family and childcare obligations which may hamper their integration process.

  • We at Female Fellows thank that empowerment of migrant and refugee women in Europe is not a choice, it is rather a great responsibility

International/ EU Engagement

Why is International engagement important?

  • Females comprise 130 million or 48% of the total global migrants. In Europe, the share of female migrants is more than half )51.4%(of the total migrants (UNDESA 2019)

  • 43% of the total asylum seekers in Germany are females (ECRE, 2019)


  • Female Fellows believe that migration and integration is a long-term process that needs cooperation with different stakeholders at the local, national, and EU levels

  • Most of the refugees are coming from conflict-affected countries such as (Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Eretria, and ..) with less access to education and employment. Hence they need exceptional measures for their integration into host societies
