Women’s Rights and Gender Equality: Best Practices for Refugee Protection Services

I recently had the honor of presenting at “Double Jeopardy: Woman Refugee,” a panel organized by the European Parliament as part of International Women’s Day. The event focused on the refugee crisis from a gender perspective in order to raise awareness of the situation of women refugees in Europe. I spoke alongside Mary Honeyball, Member of the European Parliament, and Rahela Sidiqi, Trustee of Women for Refugee Women.
