The experience of the IFRC and 43 CSOs in addressing the needs of migrant domestic workers and victims of trafficking
Between 2013 and 2017 the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) implemented the Rights of Migrants in Action (ROMIA) project co-funded by the Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO) of the European Commission. The project focused on promoting the rights and protection of migrants with a particular focus on migrant domestic workers and victims, or potential victims of trafficking.
Its end goal was to provide needed services to vulnerable migrants and to strengthen the capacity and networks of civil society organisations (CSOs), improve coordination with government, and influence policy at a variety of levels. Close collaboration between an IFRC central management team, 15 RCRC National Societies and 43 CSOs was established, with the participation of EU delegations and national actors in implementing countries.
This conference will be an opportunity to hear from the recent independent external evaluation, which looked at the overall model that was used in order to extract lessons and best practices for future work.
