Forum of European Muslim Youth and Student Organisations
The Forum of European Muslim Youth and Student Organizations (FEMYSO) is the youth/student arm of the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe (FIOE), and is registered as an NGO in Brussels. FEMYSO has developed relationships with the Council of Europe, the European Commission, and a host of other significant organizations at the European and international levels. One of the important leaders of FEMYSO over the years has been German Muslim Brotherhood leader Ibrahim El-Zayat. In recent times, its leadership has been drawn from the family of influential Global Muslim Brotherhood leaders, including the daughter of Rachid Ghannouchi. In November 2020, the GIOR reported that Kauthar BOUCHALLIKHT, then FEMYSO Vice-Chairman and an MP for the Dutch EFA member GroenLinks, was likely the daughter of one of the most influential leaders of the GMB in the Netherlands.
