Nora Salas Seoane, Wassu-UAB Foundation

My name is Nora Salas Seoane, I am a Psychologist with a Master’s Degree on the Anthropology of Childhood and Youth, and I am the Coordinator of Wassu-UAB Foundation. My main role within the organization is the management of the projects runned by it. Wassu-UAB Foundation is a scientific organization of international scope, initiated in 1987, working for the management and prevention of Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) through anthropological and medical research, applied to knowledge transfer. It hosts the Transnational Observatory of Applied Research to New Strategies for the Prevention of Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting, under the Chair of Knowledge Transfer, at the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology, of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). Following a unique model, we conduct applied research on the socio-cultural reality of FGM/C and its health consequences, and we transfer this knowledge in a culturally respectful way to key social agents for them to be the ones transferring it to the society. We have chosen to participate in the CHAT project because it is aligned with our methodology of transferring knowledge to key agents through dialogue and mutual learning  for the prevention of the practice. It also gives us the opportunity of continuing with our goal while sharing good practices with other partnering European countries contributing to the prevention of this harmful traditional practice.
