Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is a cultural practice which pops up again and again when
it comes to immigration. But what does it actually mean and what is the background of the practice? 

The training will base on perspectives of migrants from African Region where the practice is popular.
Based on the participants interest, the training will adress the following questions:

What is the definition of FGM and which types exist?
