The Danish Action Plan against FGM
Den Danske Handlingsplan imod Omskæring af Kvinder
The action plan briefly summarizes the Danish legislation on FGM and concludes the necessity of an action plan. This conclusion is based on a low level of knowledge on FGM and the fact that the law does not seem to be applied in practice. Therefore a volunteer steering committee is established consisting of experts who formulated the action plan. The action plan sets out strategies, target groups, responsible actors and time schedule on how to combat FGM in Denmark.
