NOPOOR Policy Brief Nr. 12: Fighting Harmful Practices : The Case Of Female Genital Cutting

Type of the publication: 

How to fight women hurting customs is still an open question. Legal bans and grass-root based programs have been implemented to stop female genital cutting, but there is still little evidence on their impact. We present here some empirical findings on anti-FGC interventions in Senegal and a discussion on the theoretical underpinnings of these policies.
