Types of Violence - France

Violence against asylum seekers and refugee women in France

17.05.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

This study seeks to analyse, from a gender and legal perspective, the violence suffered by women asylum seekers and refugees when they are on French territory, as well as the response to this violence.

By documenting this violence as well as risk factors and good practices in the field of prevention and protection, the study aims to shed light on a rather invisible reality and to provide fields of work and intervention for the various stakeholders.

This document is intended to advance the fight against violence against women.
