Our theme for 2017? Building Bridges!

The End FGM European Network has designated Building Bridges as our theme for 2017.

  • We will be holding events, training sessions and running communications campaigns around this theme.

Building Bridges is defined by the creation of synergies to develop, share and coordinate actions, policies and legal frameworks to end FGM in countries of residence and of origin.

The Network sees such coordination as essential in ending FGM and sees also the role that the EU can be playing in ending FGM globally. Given that the practice can have a cross-border element, measures for the prevention, protection and prosecution of FGM needs to take this element into account.

In 2014, the End FGM European Network produced a concept paper on Building bridges between relevant actors to End FGM
