  4. On Thursday 21st June, the launch of a seminal report on undocumented women was cohosted by members of the European Parliament from across the poltical spectrum. Thanking PICUM for producing a report presenting good practical measures alongside a wider case for policy change, Jean Lambert Green MEP for London noted how the testimonies from undocumented women highlighted how failures elsewhere had caused many to become irregular. “Whether you are a supporter of border controls or not, the failure of the current system in so many places becomes absolutely crystal clear,” she explained illustrating how small changes in procedures could give a much better chance to women migrants and offer an early response to avoid them becoming undocumented, “Part of the challenge is how to prevent people from becoming undocumented, there are things in the legisaltion we can improve, things in the practice we can improve”. Ms Lambert emphasised the importance of providing migrant women with an independent migration status, “The failure of the system to see women as individuals in heir own rights, with something to contribute rather then a ‘trailing spouse’ comes up time and time again.”
