The war in Ukraine has made it clearer than ever that women and girls are disproportionately affected by crises. The conflict has had a very negative impact on migrant women, including when it comes to different forms of gender-based violence and human trafficking. The event will therefore explore the whys and hows of gender-sensitive migration (and other) crisis management.

This side-event will highlight the challenges and specific needs of migrant, refugee and asylum-seeking women and girls, as well as the existing legal framework providing useful guidance. It will offer an opportunity to exchange on experience and practical solutions to improve the situation of women and girls on the ground, either in their country of origin, during the journey, or upon arrival.

The event will also foster an understanding of how gender aspects intersect with migration and will promote gender equality and human dignity.
