Getting in universities classrooms: Multisectoral Academic Training Guide on FGM/C
Seeking to abandon a practice such as female genital mutilation, involves an intense work in awareness, education and training of future professionals who could be in contact with victims of FGM/C in their respective fields of work.
Taking this to consideration, the Multisectoral Academic Programme to Prevent & Combat Female Genital Mutilation /Cutting (MAP-FGM), in Wassu-UAB Foundation is actively involved, has published the Multisectoral Academic Training Guide on FGM/C, under the supervision and direction of Dr. Adriana Kaplan and Dr. Laura Nuño Gómez, as part of the activities of the European Daphne project.
The text promotes and facilitates the incorporation of FGM/C topic in the bachelor’s degrees and postgraduates studies in Medicine, Nursing, Education, Psychology, Social Work, Law, Anthropology, International Cooperation, Gender and Feminist Studies, Journalism and Communication Studies. Currently it’s published in six languages and is applied in four countries through the institutions associated with the MAP-FGM/C project. The guide responds to the intensity of academic debates and the complexity of theoretical and practical dilemmas posed by FGM/C, both in origin countries and the host countries.
