This annual report offers information and recommendations aimed at improving the services provided to women in Europe, notably to migrant minority women. By showing that these women are often faced with multiple types of violence and discrimination, the report tries to elaborate on common problems and gaps in service provision and protection. It focuses on specific support services for women survivors of violence and their children. It does not include generalist services such as women’s helplines, women’s shelters and women’s support centres.
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.
