EIGE is bringing experts and policy makers from the EU Member States together in London to discuss Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).

In June 2012 EIGE completed the first phase of the “Study to map the current situation and trends of female genital mutilation in 27 EU Member States (MS) and Croatia”. The participants will contribute to the ongoing discussion on practices with potential and/or good practices in combating FGM.

They are all in one way or the other involved in the definition and implementation of specific policy interventions on the issue of FGM. Participants will include representatives from the Member States, from NGOs and international organisations, who work on FGM. Among the participants you find the British MP, Ms Jane Ellison, the chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on FGM and the members of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on FGM.

The meeting will take place 13 September 2012.
