Brief Description


A Unit for the Coordination of Immigration (UCI) was established under the Prime Minister. Cabo Verde developed a National Immigration Action Plan (2013-2016) which ensures that women of foreign nationality who are survivors of gender based violence are supported through the inter-institutional network, however human trafficking situations have specific challenges and specific responses need to be considered. The dialogue between the UCI and associative leaders is being strengthened, which will enable gender issues to be addressed in partnership with the Cape Verdean Institute for Gender Equality and Equity, NGOs and associations, including a newly established association of Muslim women.
