“Men Have A Role to Play But They Don’t Play It”: A Mixed Methods Study Exploring Men’s Involvement in Female Genital Mutilation in Belgium, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom

In the context of this project, a mixed methods study was conducted in Belgium, the UK and the Netherlands to increase knowledge of men’s role in the perpetuation of the practice. Four key problems were addressed in this research: men’s understanding of FGM, its health risks and human rights violations; communication between women and men about the practice of FGM; men’s opinions of FGM; and male involvement in the decision making process to end the practice.
