Recommendations on preventing and combating violence against refugee women and girls on the Move

20.09.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

The recent flows of refugees to and throughout Europe have highlighted the lack of interest and understanding for the specific situation of women and girls on the move by decision-makers and the media. The vast majority of women and girls migrating throughout Europe are fleeing conflict and male violence, and are looking for a safe environment. However, they face different forms of male violence on their journey and see their human rights violated in Europe. This Report presents the European Women’s Lobby’s recommendations to ensure protection of women and girls refuges and asylum seekers from all forms of male violence, at all stages of their journey towards peace.
