The objective of the study is 1. To explore FGM through a system perspective where the focus will be on the work that the police do against this form of crime, so that we shall have a better understanding and possible solutions to the challenges that the police face when they investigate this type of crime. 2. Through insights and understanding, we will be able to suggest solutions that may influence the scope and dimension and have a deterring effect.
Questions: What is the cause for reported cases being dismissed within the system of law. Why did it become a case? Who reports cases and on what basis are the cases reported? How does the police work with these cases. What competence do they have, and what competence do they miss? How does information flow within the system? Do the police have to take special consideration with FGM cases that they do not have to take with other cases?
