Female genital mutilation: How many girls are at risk in Luxembourg?
The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) estimates that 12–17 % of girls (102– 136 girls aged 0–18) are at risk of female genital mutilation (FGM) in Luxembourg, out of a total population of 822 girls aged 0–18 in 2019 and originating from countries where FGM is practised.
Of these 822 migrant girls, 24 % (201) are second generation.
Girls at risk of FGM in Luxembourg mostly originate from Eritrea. Smaller groups of girls originate from Cote D'Ivoire, Egypt, Ethiopia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, and Iraq.
