On the occasion of International Women’s Day, the Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality is organising an inter-parliamentary committee meeting dealing with the issue of women refugees and asylum seekers in the EU.

This meeting brings together MEPs, representatives of national parliaments of the member states, candidate countries and Norway, and those of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) and the European Commission, amongst others.

The discussions will focus on combating violence against women refugees and asylum seekers, their situation in healthcare, and measures for promoting their integration.
