This event aims to examine the essential aspects of an acute presentation of female genitalia mutilation (FGM) in a child and the criminal investigation, whilst ensuring the welfare of the child remains paramount.
In this session, key speakers will cover the clinical aspects of the child's presentation, assessment and clinical care, safeguarding the child, along with aspects of the police investigation and evidence gathering. It will also cover the case building, charging decision and prosecution.
Please note that due to recent developments, this event will now take place in the form of a webinar.
The SLSA has been running an Annual Conference since the association was founded in 1990. These conferences are central to the SLSA's objective of the dissemination of knowledge in the field of socio-legal studies. For details about their previous conferences, please visit their past conferences page.
For each Socio-Legal Studies Association conference, participants can submit their paper to a number of “streams” and “current topics”. For SLSA York 2022, there are 34 streams and 10 “current topics” to choose from.
Streams are established sections in the SLSA conference – these have often been running for many years and reflect established areas of research by SLSA members. Current Topics – as the name implies – are designed to be more responsive to current problems and issues.
The SLSA also invites poster submissions. Here, you still submit an abstract then (if the abstract is accepted) upload a poster – and bring a physical copy – to the conference.
