'Too Much Pain: FGM and asylum in the EU, A statistical overview'' provides some of the statistical evidence needed to advance the discussion on the necessary policies and tools to address the specific vulnerabilities of female asylum-seekers with FGM in the asylum system on the one hand, and of refugee girls and women living with FGM and integrating in EU Member States on the other hand. This document also provides estimates that draw attention to the specific needs for international protection girls (and their parents) as well as women may raise in relation to FGM.
