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 describes my field research for the UN in Burkina Faso and can be accessed here (in Dutch). The article concludes that criminal laws and prosecutions in case of Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting in Burkina Faso has positive effects.
