‘I Carry the Name of my Parents’

This report presents the results of three Participatory Ethnographic Evaluation Research (PEER) studies, carried out as part of the CREATE Youth-Net project, which aims to safeguard young people in three European countries (the United Kingdom, Portugal and the Netherlands) from harmful practices, in particular Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage. The two year project is funded by the European Commission Daphne programme and led by Foundation for Women’s Health and Development (FORWARD), in partnership with Federation of Somali Associations in the Netherlands (FSAN), Family Planning Association Portugal (APF) and Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation (IKWRO).
