Estimation of girls at risk of female genital mutilation in the European Union

22-05-2015

This guide sets out the minimum requirements for estimating FGM risk, as well as suggestions to enhance the quality and accuracy of the assessment.

The step-by-step guide aims to be a practical support for those appointed to the task to estimate the risk of FGM in a region or a country within the EU. At the same time, by offering a common methodological frame-work to estimate FGM risk in the EU, EIGE wants to contribute to the production of comparable and up‑to‑date data across EU Member States. Estimations of FGM risk provide relevant input to EU Member States’ policy makers to continue their work towards the prevention of FGM and the protection of girls from being subjected to this harmful practice.
