End FGM European Network – Amnesty International EU/Ireland

Shaping the narrative and influencing policy to tackle FGM in Europe

European Union
2008 - 2017

The End FGM European Network (End FGM EU) is an umbrella grouping of 21 organisations working to ensure sustainable action to end female genital mutilation. In 2008, HDF supported the emergence of a dedicated, EU-wide end FGM campaign, managed by Amnesty International. From 2015, the second phase of this initiative supported the transition of the campaign into a fully-fledged, independent network. End FGM EU elevates the voices of activists and advocates for EU policy commitments to tackle FGM.
