Inter Press Service correspondent Julia Kallas interviews Alvilda Jablonko, coordinator of the No Peace Without Justice Programme on FGM, about the U.N. General Assembly’s adoption last year of a resolution urging countries to ban female genital mutilation (FGM). According to the interview transcript, Jablonko discusses the main barriers she faced “while trying to advocate the resolution,” examines what the next steps will be now that the resolution has been adopted, and talks about how much of an impact she thinks the resolution will have (1/3).
