Indian Women's Migration to the EU

Raghuram, Parvati (2022). Indian Women's Migration to the EU. International Labour Office, Switzerland.


It is a well-documented fact that the number of women migrants has increased exponentially across the globe, and Indian women migrants are a small but important contributor to these stocks. This study aims at shining a spotlight on Indian migrant women with regular immigration status, living and working in the European Union (EU). However, there was not enough data to put together information on Indian women with irregular immigration status in the EU.

The study begins with an overview of Indian migrant stocks and flows into the EU-27 and goes on to focus on the key migration categories for first permits: employment, family and education. The paper also examines migration trends, definitions and the experiences of Indian women migrants in the EU.
