Initial Assessment Report: Protection Risks for Women and Girls in the European Refugee and Migrant Crisis - Greece and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia

Concerned by the protection risks faced by women and girls in the European
refugee and migrant crisis, the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), the
United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) undertook a joint seven-day assessment mission
to Greece and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia in November 2015. This
report describes the assessment’s findings and key recommendations for the
European Union (EU), transit and destination country governments, humanitarian
actors and civil society organizations (CSOs). The assessment found that women
and girl refugees and migrants face grave protection risks and that the current
response by governments, humanitarian actors, EU institutions and agencies and
CSOs are inadequate.
