Declaration of the International Conference on Border Control and Empowerment of Immigrant Brides

Declaration of the International Conference on Border Control and Empowerment of Immigrant Brides


29 and 30 September 2007


Taipei, Taiwan



We, the delegates of the International Conference on Border Control and Empowerment of Immigrant Brides from Australia, Canada, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and Taiwan, commit ourselves to unite and work towards the defense of the human rights of immigrant brides and the promotion of their welfare.


We believe that the implementation of the policies of neoliberal globalization has drastically increased the number of women forced into transnational marriages for an opportunity for a better life. Poverty, intensified by the neoliberal globalization agenda, has put women from underdeveloped and developing countries in situations vulnerable to abuse and exploitation by marriage bureaus and matchmaking agencies through various modus operandi.


We believe that, though transnational marriages are facilitated by the private sector, governments of countries of origin of immigrant brides allow the proliferation of practices of matchmaking agencies and marriage bureaus because these generate income for the government.


Much like the migrant workers, the increase of immigrant brides translate to even more revenue for the governments of countries of origin in the form of fees that the women or their prospective husband are forced to pay as well as the remittances their nationals are expected to send. This leads to further commodification of immigrant brides as women and as immigrants.


Governments of countries of origin pay lipservice to issues of women, migrants and immigrants; lack political will to implement policies beneficial to women and immigrant brides; provide minimal, if not nil, services and protection especially to immigrant brides who have been victimized by violence, and; lack decisive actions to address the root causes of why more and more women are forced to become immigrant brides.


We believe that in countries of destination, the situation of immigrant women is worsening. The crisis that destination countries of immigrants brides are experiencing, compounded by the continuing anti-terror hysteria, has resulted to government policies that are more restrictive and repressive to immigrant brides as well as to the larger community of immigrants and migrant workers.


Policies on border control of host countries have become even tighter in the past years and have diminished the rights of immigrant brides in the economic, political, civil and social aspects of the society. Discrimination against immigrant brides is rampant. Violence against immigrant brides, both at home and in the larger society, also persists.


We believe that governments of countries of origin and host countries of immigrant brides must work for an international mechanism that shall comprehensively address the condition of immigrant brides. While there are already existing international instruments that may cover some issues of immigrant brides, these are not enough and even these are not properly and conscientiously implemented.


We believe in the importance of empowering immigrant brides in the grassroots level to build and strengthen the movement of immigrant brides actively pushing for their rights and working together to uphold their welfare.


The movement of immigrant brides, with the important support and assistance that intitutions can provide, shall ensure the individual and collective empowerment of immigrant brides. In the experiences of many countries – both countries of destination and countries of origin – changes in policies that imperil the rights of immigrant brides can be achieved if we rely on the strength of the immigrant brides themselves. Even beyond the changes in policies, new policies that are more equitable to immigrant brides can be fought for and eventually won through actions in the grassroots level.


In recognition of the objective situation of unequal development of grassroots immigrants brides movements in different countries, we shall persevere to learn from each other’s experiences and uphold the lessons of effective advocacy, education and organizing work among immigrant brides.


We commit to form a broader and stronger network in order to strengthen our coordination and cooperation for future actions and activities on the issues of immigrant brides. While we harness the broadest unity on matters of immigrant brides in the international level, we will also advance local struggles –both countries of destination and countries of origin – of immigrant brides and aim for concrete gains to alleviate their situation.


We recognize the primacy of education work and public information to deepen understanding on the different dimensions of the immigrant brides phenomenon for even more effective actions.


We also uphold the need for empowerment of immigrant brides in the grassroots level in the comprehensive work of advancing the rights and wellbeing of immigrant brides.


With the stronger solidarity forged, we, delegates of the International Conference on Border Control and Empowerment of Immigrant Brides commit ourselves to the following actions:


Advocacy



  1. Identify national issues where the network can call for coordinated actions among the members.

  2. Formulate advocacy plans to push the United Nations to come up with a convention that specifically addresses the concerns of immigrant brides.

  3. Create venues where the network can meet and further develop the planned actions.

Research and Education



  1. Launch comparative studies on policies that impact immigrant brides to deepen our understanding on the various dimensions of the issue.

  2. Conduct studies and training on organizing of immigrant brides in destination countries and in countries of origin.

  3. Document and publish stories on the different levels of empowerment of immigrant brides

Organizing



  1. Facilitate exchange programs between organizations of immigrant brides as well as institutions working with immigrant brides to learn from each other’s experiences,

  2. Actively participate in the development of an international movement of im/migrant organizations (International Migrant Alliance)

Assalamu alaikum wr wb,,senang sekali saya bisa menulis dan berbagi kepada teman2 melalui room ini, sebelumnya dulu saya adalah seorang Pengusaha Butik yg Sukses, kini saya gulung tikar akibat di tipu teman sendiri, ditengah tagihan utang yg menumpuk, Suami pun meninggalkan saya, dan ditengah himpitan ekonomi seperti ini, saya coba buka internet untuk cari lowongan kerja, dan secara tdk sengaja sy liat situs pesugihan AKI SYEH MAULANA, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya, tapi setelah saya lihat pembuktian video AKI ZYEH MAULANA Di Website/situnya Saya pun langsug hubungi beliau dan Semua petunjuk AKI saya ikuti dan hanya 3 hari, Alhamdulilah benar benar terbukti dan 2Miliar yang saya minta benar benar ada di tangan saya, semua utang saya lunas dan sisanya buat modal usaha, kata kata beliau yang selalu sy ingat setiap manusia bisa menjadi kaya, hanya saja terkadang mereka tidak tahu atau salah jalan. Banyak orang menganggap bahwa miskin dan kaya merupakan bagian dari takdir Tuhan. Takdir macam apa? Tuhan tidak akan memberikan takdir yang buruk terhadap kita, semua cobaan yang Tuhan berikan merupakan pembuktian seberapa kuat Anda bertahan di dalamnya. Tuhan tidak akan merubah nasib Anda jika Anda tidak berusaha untuk merubahnya. Dan satu hal yang perlu Anda ingat, “Jika Anda terlahir miskin itu bukan salah siapapun, namun jika Anda mati miskin itu merupakan salah Anda, saya juga tidak lupa mengucap syukur kepada ALLAH karna melalui Ritual Penarikan Dana Hibah/Pesugihan Putih AKI ZYEH MAULANA saya Bisa sukses. Jadi kawan2 yg dalam kesusahan jg pernah putus asah, kalau sudah waktunya tuhan pasti kasi jalan asal anda mau berusaha, AKI ZYEH MAULANA Banyak Dikenal Oleh Kalangan Pejabat, Pengusaha Dan Artis Ternama Karna Beliau adalah guru spiritual terkenal di indonesia,jika anda ingin seperti saya silahkan Lihat No Tlp Aki Di website/internet »»>KLIK DISINI<««
