The VIW project aims to answer to the need of students of developing better knowledge and awareness toward the theme of female migrations considering the interrelation of factors such as: gender, status, ethnicity, age, religion, origin, political opinion. The project also aims to make the Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) more inclusive by promoting a holistic comprehension of the gender issues in migration flows. The project will produce three main outputs: (i) mapping of Case studies of Successful Integration of Women; (ii) an e-learning course preparing students of social sciences to deal with women migrants’ integration; and (iii) a set of policy recommendations providing practically oriented intervention proposal to policy-makers involved at all level in Higher Education and integration of migrants’ policies.
