The legal aspects of 20 recent criminal court cases in Europe are analysed, and evidence about transnational movement to have FGM performed is assessed. The report is based on data collected by country experts in eleven European countries. Data include court decisions, migration background of groups from FGM-practising countries in the host countries, the process of FGM reporting, and stakeholders’ proposals and opinions regarding FGM.
