Quilliam Launches New Report on FGM in Britain at the House of Commons

Quilliam International is excited to announce that we are launching our latest report, titled FGM Legislation in Britain: “A National Scandal”, authored by Researcher and Media Strategist, Muna Adil, which Quilliam have produced in association with the AHA Foundation in the US.

The report highlights the dire situation of FGM conviction rates in the UK and aims to act as a catalyst for proactive action on implementing FGM laws in Britain. In the report, we discuss that, just in 2016-2017, 5,391 new cases of FGM were recorded in the UK, yet Britain has failed to bring a single perpetrator of FGM to justice. The report discusses a variety of reasons why Britain remains alone in Europe in its inability to prosecute FGM, including disempowered survivors, a lack of witnesses, cultural sensitivity, a severe lack of education and resources for victims, and the existence of legal loopholes.
