The purpose of this meeting is to bring together for the first time participants from various European countries with experience on gender discrimination or sex selection among Asian diasporas or in the Western Balkans. Research on sex selection has remained so far isolated and mostly limited to specific communities or subregions and there is a growing for a more sustained documentation of the various dimensions of gender discrimination in Europe. One outcome of this workshop should be the preparation of a joint research note on the extent of sex selection in Europe, its social and cultural characteristics and the way ahead for future research and intervention.
