Academic cycles: How we do research on FGM/C?

The academy is a key factor when it comes to addressing topics with many cultural, social and health edges, such as female genital mutilation. That’s why academics and professionals from around the world gave their experiences about FGM/C research in the seminar “Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting at the intersection of qualitative, quantitative and mixed method research - Experiences from Africa and Europe”, that took place on Brussels on 8th and 9th of June.

This was the second of four seminars framed in the MAP-FGM (Multisectoral Academic Program to Combat and Prevent Female Genital Mutilation) project, which objective is to generate discussion about the added value of research in the campaign For the abandonment of FGM.

In the remainder of the year, two other international presentations are scheduled as part of the activities of the European Daphne project, the nearest takes place in Lisbon on September 28th and 29th and the last one in Rome on November 24th and 25th.
