Changing a Harmful Social Convention: Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting

Paperback
This Innocenti Digest examines the social dynamics of female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C).

In communities where it is practiced, FGM/C is an important part of girls’ and women’s cultural gender identity. The procedure imparts a sense of pride, of coming of age and a feeling of community membership. Moreover, not conforming to the practice stigmatizes and isolates girls and their families, resulting in the loss of their social status. The social expectations surrounding FGM/C represent a major obstacle to families who might otherwise wish to abandon the practice.More Information

Today's rising generation is the first in which a majority are spending a large part of early childhood in some form of out-of-home child care. At the same time, neuroscientific research is demonstrating that loving, stable, secure, and stimulating relationships with caregivers in the earliest months and years of life are critical for every aspect of a child’s development.More Information

There is a lack of systematic and validated evidence on the situation of children who have migrated with their parents. This gap is particularly striking for industrialized countries where data on children and families is otherwise generally complete. This study presents internationally comparable statistics on the family contexts in industrialized countries in which different groups of immigrant and native children live. It is intended to promote a greater understanding of the situation of these children and the barriers to inclusion they may face, and to make policy recommendations. More Information

The data and observations in this Innocenti Report Card reveal a strong and multifaceted correlation between the impact of the Great Recession on national economies and a decline in children’s well-being since 2008. Children are suffering most, and will bear the consequences longest, in countries where the recession has hit hardest. For each country, the extent and character of the crisis’s impact on children has been shaped by the depth of the recession, pre-existing economic conditions, the strength of the social safety net and, most importantly, policy responsesMore Information

After almost two decades of transition, the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) region continues to be a region in a state of change. The report uses available data to identify critical economic and social trends and assess the impact of policies on children in the period of growth immediately preceding the current crisis. It also looks at changes in the context in which children are growing up: the character of economic growth, widening inequalities, striking demographic trends, as well as public expenditure levels and structures, all of which influence policy choices that affect children.More Information
