The European Network of Migrant Women (ENoMW) invited us to talk about the Hague Mothers’ legacy project as part of their Migrant Women Reality Watch series. They have been running a month-long communications campaign during May linked to an EU-funded ‘Mums at Work’ project which aims to strengthen migrant mothers’ labour integration and to raise awareness of their rights.
Ruth, who is co-ordinating the Hague Mother’s project, was joined by one of our UK participants, Adrienne Barnett of Brunel University, London. Adrienne practised as a barrister in London for over 30 years, for 25 of which she specialised in Family Law, including Hague Convention cases. She has collaborated with international practitioners and scholars to seek improvements to the way in which courts respond to victim/survivors of domestic abuse in Hague Convention cases. Adrienne is a member of the Advisory Group of Rights of Women and the Expert Advisory Group to Women’s Aid’s ‘Child First’ campaign.
Many thanks to Adrienne for her expert contribution.
And to Adriana of ENoMU for the invitation and for your organisations’ support for the Hague Mothers’ legacy project. We appreciate it!
