On 26 May 2021, the European Institute for Gender Equality is organising a virtual dissemination event for the launch of the report ’Estimation of girls at risk of female genital mutilation in the EU: Denmark, Spain, Luxembourg and Austria’. You can read the news article published by EIGE in connection to the study results here.
In addition to presenting the latest findings on FGM in the EU, EIGE will look at what action is needed to raise the voice of communities affected by FGM. A panel discussion will bring together policymakers and representatives of affected communities to speak about laws, awareness-raising campaigns, and healthcare support – what are we doing well and how can we do better?
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
