ILPA will be hosting its inaugural 'Women in the Hostile Environment Conference' in celebration of International Women's Day on 06 March 2020. International Women's Day (08 March) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. This conference aims to cover a broad range of issues and developments facing women in the hostile environment, as well as sharing campaign initiatives, strategic litigation cases and best practice.
The conference will be addressing the following topics:
- Women in the hostile environment
- Access to primary and secondary healthcare and maternity charging
- The Istanbul Convention
- European Law and Article 8 of the ECHR
- Destitution and Section 17 of the Children's Act 1989
- Trafficking and the NRM
This conference is also an opportunity for us to celebrate the contributions of women within the legal and immigration sector in challenging systemic, structural and social inequalities as well as the positive impact they make to the lived experiences of migrant women and their families in the UK and abroad.
