Protecting refugee women from gender-based violence

Amendment No. 6 | Doc. 14284 | 25 April 2017

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

In the draft resolution, at the end of paragraph 5.3.1, add the following words:

", and aim at full protection, including refugee status".

Explanatory note

The European Union provides refugee status for women and girls where there is well-founded fear of violence, but research by Nora Markard (2006) has shown that some member States only give them one year’s subsidiary protection.
