This event will bring together the practitioner movement with those from academia to provide important information about FGM in Greater Manchester.
The evening will provide an opportunity for the audience to view a small exhibition about FGM, including access to some online videos, followed by a presentation from Dr Kate Cook’s current work on the law on FGM. There will then be time for discussion and networking. In November of 2014, Dr Cook chaired an important conference on FGM at MMU, with 250 delegates attending. Since then she has been working on an evaluation of recent changes within the Serious Crime Act 2015, where key provisions came into force in May 2015. At present there are very few legal academics considering the law on FGM and a correspondingly scant literature. This work is therefore rare, useful and demonstrates significant future impact within the social sciences and society.
