Initial Assessment Report: Protection Risks for Women and Girls in the European Refugee and Migrant Crisis

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. 01/20/2016This 25-page report describes a seven-day assessment mission to understand the protection risks facing women and girls in the European refugee and migrant crisis. The mission to Greece and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia was undertaken in November 2015 by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), and Women's Refugee Commission (WRC). The assessment found that women and girl refugees and migrants face grave protection risks, and that the current responses by governments, humanitarian actors, European Union institutions and agencies, and civil society organizations are inadequate.
