CoP FGM: Webinar – Gender transformative approaches to ending FGM

On December 2, 2021, AIDOS, GAMS Belgium and the End FGM EU Network will host the online closing conference of the International Stakeholders Dialogue (ISD) on “Gender Transformative Approaches to Ending FGM”.


In October and November 2021, AIDOS, GAMS Belgium and the End FGM European Network, organized a virtual International Stakeholder Dialogue (ISD) on the topic of “gender transformative approaches to ending FGM” (GTA). The Dialogue gathered stakeholders from the public, private and civil-society sectors, in Africa, Europe and beyond, working towards the elimination of FGM.

Gender transformative approaches include measures aiming to inform/sensitize or even transform men and boys on the issue of toxic masculinity, to challenge gendered social norms, including harmful gender stereotypes, and favoring women and girls’ empowerment. Such programmes must challenge gender roles and gender power dynamics, and work to counter them both at institutional and society levels.

This webinar will be an opportunity to learn about the results of the dialogue and the recommendations developed for donors, policy makers, international organisations and NGOs.
