Protecting refugee women from gender-based violence

Amendment No. 1 | Doc. 14284 | 25 April 2017

Committee on Migration, Refugees and Displaced Persons
2017 - Second part-session

In the title of the draft resolution, after the word "women", insert the following words:

"and girls".

Explanatory note

Female refugees under the age of 18 years are often victims of gender-based violence including sexual assault, trafficking and child marriage, both in their home country as well as while fleeing. They deserve special attention as child refugees and unaccompanied minors. This should be reflected in the title.
