Article in De Volkskrant

April 12, 2018

The 10th of April 2018, an article was published in a well-known Dutch daily morning newspaper (De Volkskrant). A couple of weeks before, I was interviewed by Rob Vreeken, a journalist with vivid knowledge of harmful practices and with a clear understanding of the African context in which those practices take place.  The article explains that criminal laws and prosecutions in case of Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting in Burkina Faso has positive effects. The article describes my field research for the UN in Burkina Faso and can be accessed here (in Dutch).
