UK Aid, through FCDO, is funding the Work in Freedom Phase 2 (WiF-2) which aims “to reduce vulnerability to trafficking and forced labour of women and girls across migration pathways leading to the care sector and textiles, clothing, leather and footwear industries (TCLFI) of South Asia and Arab States.” WiF-2 which runs from 2018 to 2023, intends to reach at least 350,000 women and girls at source in India, Nepal, and Bangladesh, and at destination in Oman, Bahrain, Lebanon and Jordan.
CEDIL is supporting an evaluation of selected interventions of WiF-2 with a focus on identifying interventions that reduce women’s vulnerabilities in the migration space. To analyse migration challenges and identify solutions we applied an innovative, gendered Risks and Options Assessment for Decision-Making (ROAD) process that included facilitated risks assessment and network mapping in countries of origin and destination, followed by mixed quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis. We also developed and applied a novel Women’s Empowerment in Migration Index (WEMI) to help us identify entry points for policy intervention. Please join us to discuss a summary of key results.
