Abstract:This study aims to research Female Genital Mutilation asylum cases brought to the European Court of Human Rights and National courts of Member States of the European Union. The cases will be researched for the criteria used for the final court decision. How were they used, were different arguments made based on the same criterion? While giving a background on Female Genital Mutilation in general and on the asylum law provision of the EU, the study will finally answer the proposed research question: How are Human Rights criteria applied to Female Genital Mutilation Asylum cases in the European Union? The analysis showed that there are criteria which are used in a rather broad context, while others are used for the same argumentations in various cases.
