Upcoming Events


The Debate over Religious Freedom and Female Genital Mutilation

Thursday, May 2, 2019

6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Bard Globalization & International Affairs Program 108 West 39th Street, Suite 1000-A, NY, NY
Maryum Saifee, career diplomat and fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, will be in conversation with Faraz Sanei of Cardozo Law School about the practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), legal implications and activism around the issue.

There have been several recent court cases involving FGM. A typical defense argument is that the practice of FGM is protected under religious freedom. The purpose of the discussion will be to gain a better understanding of FGM in the United States, how religious freedom relates to FGM, and transnational advocacy efforts to end the practice.

This is part of BGIA’s James Chace Lecture series and is supported by Foreign Affairs magazine.
