REPLACE 2 – Researching Female Genital Mutilation Intervention Programmes Linked to African Communities in the EU

Home / Projects / Rights and Justice / REPLACE 2 – Researching Female Genital Mutilation Intervention Programmes Linked to African Communities in the EU

Objectives

  • To implement the REPLACE behaviour change toolkit for ending Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) with practising communities in the EU
  • To evaluate the experience of using the methodological approach and the behaviour change framework within the toolkit, amongst those involved
  • To engage communities in devising strategies for change
  • To develop feasible evaluation techniques and protocols with communities for their strategies for change
  • To develop and improve the REPLACE Behaviour Change toolkit for ending FGM in the EU
  • To build sustainability of the toolkit through knowledge transfer and capacity building with a range of partners and communities in the EU

Activities

  • Working with the original Somali and Sudanese communities (UK and Netherlands) from the previous REPLACE project (2010-11) to apply the findings from that work and the REPLACE approach and devise new tailored strategies for change in their communities.
  • Applying the REPLACE approach and toolkit to other FGM practising communities in other EU countries (Italy, Portugal and Spain) to identify facilitators and barriers to change that are specific to them, and important as the focus for intervention strategy design.
