  • Laura Luna
    "I believe that the struggle for the visibility of migrant women, for their rights and for the eradication of some of the social scourges that still persist scourges that still persist today.To suggest a proposal for improvement, add some more audiovisual resources to support the written material. "

  • Lucía Cuenca
    "It is a reality with little visibility and helps to better position oneself when learning how to intervene with them professionally. Very complete and simple. It would be better to add more video and audio resources." "

  • Sofía Montenegro
    "In my opinion it is very useful because there is little training and projects that I have been able to see on the importance of gender in the reality of migration, and the dual importance of gender in the reality of migration, and the double difficulties that are encountered because of being a woman. I see it as complete in general for a first introduction to migration and gender. " "

  • Tjaša Učakar, PhD
    " What I especially credit in this project is the practical aspect of the materials gathered. The VIW project deals with a very complex topic, women in migration, but does that in a precise, concise, very analytical and systematic way, plus it puts tremendous focus on practical usability of the results. The introduction video clearly presents a concrete issue that women in migration face, and does that as a case study of a specific real-life situation that happens every moment on the ground. After that, a short and precise theoretical overview of key concepts is provided, which gives an analytical frame to think and rethink the situation described. 2. The second strong point are the proposed practical activities. For two reasons – first, they are well structured, one or two, not too many, but well thought of and precise. Second, they are not typically cliché. They include well-structured problem-solving questions and short essay assignments, which encourage critical thinking, not just repetition of politically correct definitions. They stem from real-life situations and ask crucial questions on how to tackle the issues identified, within the theoretical and policy framework presented prior. The assignments presented avoid simple answers, but encourage critical thinking and a thorough reflection of the issue presented. 3. Good practices: every module presents some examples of good practices related to the specific field covered in that module. This is important as it presents a starting point for thinking about solutions to the issues presented. As such, the modules don’t just criticize the existing legal and social frameworks, but present an aspect of what progress has already been made in the field. This gives a level of optimism that usually lacks in similar projects, and provides a starting point for reflection for further solutions in the field. "

  • Sanja Cukut Krilić, PhD
    " "For me, the most important strength is the focus on intersectionality – although the focus of the project is on the experiences of women, it is of utmost importance to stress also other axis of social stratification in the migration process. In this way, it also engages with the contested and definitional aspects of the terms that are discussed. It is also crucial that the materials go from the more abstract/general to the more concrete levels, not only in terms of issues, but also in terms of different levels (regional, national, European). Also, it is important that the materials target both the legal (policy) level as well as the practical level of concrete prejudice and discrimination. Practical/real stories are very important to understand the often complicated theoretical issues. Stories that are chosen particularly for Slovenia are diverse, since not only ‘bad’ practices, but also practices of ‘successful integration’ (however contested this terms is) are presented. Also, videos with personal testimonies/stories are very useful. " "

  • Simona Zavratnik, PhD
    " "I believe that the merit of the project is above all the completely analytical arc: from individual examples of integration practices in local / national environments to the recommendations that will be given to policy makers based on these practices. I also think that the project managed to capture the complexity of the gender perspective or determination of female migrants in various roles: as independent migrants and as those who migrate with their families, especially with the children they care for. In addition, the glossary is really a good idea! " "


  • " I find particularly attractive and useful the interactive potential of the training, namely: the programme structure, the presence of links that refer to further in-depth information, the introduction videos, the testimonials and the possibility of comparison with other European realities, which make the fruition of the E-learning programme particularly dynamic … It was a pleasure for me to participate in the project, and I found it particularly useful and educational, especially from a professional point of view. "

  • " "The VIW E-learning training programme was helpful for me in building the framework and collecting specific regulatory and bibliographical references … Mapping case studies could further be useful in the future, in my professional field so as to implement teaching content and activate discussions with students... The mapping of case studies, consistent with the project title, makes the intention to ""give voice"" to migrant women recognisable I find most useful the usability of the provided contents, as it makes the entire programme highly inclusive, not only because of the available languages, but also because of the ways in which the materials can be accessed, and this allows to self-manage the training on one’s own, both in terms of timing, modes (downloading materials, or following online) and locations" "

  • Aldana Ratuschny
    " I believe that the VIW project is of great interest in addressing a problem of great complexity and importance today, such as migrations in the Global North, and within them the feminization of migrations, making visible not only the role of women but acknowledging the specificities of their condition. "

  • Aldana Ratuschny
    " I highlight the critical perspective that is projected towards the international system, the legal codes, the models of attention to cultural diversity, the economic system, the labor market, among others. I believe that it is urgent to dialogue, reflect and problematize on these issues, with greater seriousness and knowledge than with which they are usually addressed in the media, but at the same time in an understandable way for most people. I think this is the main strength of the course. "

  • Aldana Ratuschny
    " I also find the format and clarity of the content of both the course and the interactive map, its visual presentation, its dynamism and interactive structure very appropriate. I also find it useful that there are bibliographic, virtual, and visual resources, complementary and optional for those of us who are interested in delving into the subject. "

  • Amanda Garrido Carrasco
    " I consider that the creativity of the project added to the selection of information is one of the best potentials of the course. It offers everything you need to know, not only to raise awareness, but also for the correct intervention. It is one of the most complete courses I have ever taken. "

  • Anabel Carretero Olmedo
    " The content is quite complete since it provides information both at a conceptual and legislative level and, in addition, the case map works as the main reference pillar to relate the content to reality. "

  • Ana Fernández Quiroga
    " I think the fact that the central axis is the women's own testimonies enriches it a lot and makes it very much in line with the realities of migrant women. "

  • Ángela González Martínez
    " They present testimonies unknown to many people in a very interactive and dynamic way. In addition, it puts you in context with reality that is normally difficult to access. On the other hand, it is available in many languages, a quality that seems ideal to me since it can be accessible to more users. "

  • José Luis Rodríguez Camacho
    " The result has exceeded my expectations. It seems to me an easy-to-use tool with a very affordable temporary cost. "

  • Lorena Frías Serra
    " Regarding the Mape of Case Studies, it is important to highlight how it generates greater awareness and understanding among university students, politicians and society in general about their role in society related to the integration of immigrant women. "

  • María Pérez Guevara
    " The most interesting aspect of the project is to attract the reality of so many immigrant women who have been historically invisible. "

  • Marta
    " It makes you analyze migration from different points of view, and observe the existing inequalities in different areas and fields (labour, health, education, among others). "

  • Natalia Correa González
    " I think that one of the most remarkable aspects of the VIW project is its originality, both in its presentation, as well as in its format and content. "

  • Yolanda Pérez Varela
    " Both packages are very useful. The E-Learning Package is a first step towards migratory processes and the Map of Case Studies has allowed me to learn first-hand the migratory experiences and perceptions of migrant women, in a clear and easily accessible way. "

  • Matías Emanuel Althabe
    " The E-Learning Package comprises a set of complex contents that are approached from a transdisciplinary, comprehensive and theoretical-practical approach. The structure of the modules is clear and organized, while including appropriate assessment modalities. "

  • Claudia María López Ortiz
    " The contributions of the study in the different components that the project and its products have refer to its quality and its invaluable and pertinent process in understanding, and various mechanisms of learning and diffusion of migration for women in terms of rights and integrality with innovative and ecological visions.
