Through a number of Working Papers, the Innocenti Special Series on Social Norms and Harmful Practices, confirms that, despite marked differences between and within countries, the process leading to the abandonment of harmful practices has common transformative elements. The Working Papers define and examine these key elements so that they can be applied in programmes to support abandonment processes that promote human rights and respect the values of communities.
The following Innocenti Working Papers of the Special Series are now available:
- Social Dynamics of Abandonment of Harmful Practices: a New Look at the Theory
- Sudan: An In-Depth Analysis of the Social Dynamics of Abandonment of FGM/C
The Innocenti Special Series on Social Norms and Harmful Practices is a joint initiative of UNICEF Headquarters in New York, UNICEF Country Offices (Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Senegal), academic partners, development partners together with the UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre. The project was made possible thanks to a generous contribution from the European Commission and to other contributions, which are specified in the acknowledgements of each publication.
