Research Projects

We are hard at work on two projects which when completed will be posted in part on ARC’s web site. We are preparing a fully updated version of a comprehensive annotated bibliography of cases and articles related to legal action over circumcision. We prepared the initial version of this bibliography in November 1999 to assist in a circumcision-related lawsuit. We maintain an ongoing compilation of all successful circumcision-based lawsuits in which the amount of the award or settlement is known. The results are available to interested and appropriately qualified parties. Our third project, the compilation and organization of a compendium of all anti-sexual-mutilation statutes throughout the world, was largely completed before being shelved due to the superseding publication of a similar list relating to FGC laws only in the book by Rahman and Toubia entitled Female Genital Mutilation: A Guide to Laws and Policies Worldwide.
