The Innocenti Digests act as 'road maps' on emerging issues, and provide a succinct and comprehensive review of best practices on specific issues in developing countries and industrial nations alike. Informed by the principles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, each Digest adopts an interdisciplinary approach that includes health and nutrition, education and legal protection. While the Digests seek to outline the gravity of any given issue, they are ultimately solution-oriented: they examine the strategies that can be applied to policy, programming and advocacy work, and identify areas for further research. In this way, they serve as a working tool for policy makers, practitioners and academic institutions. The Innocenti Research Centre sees the Digests as important elements in its capacity-building efforts. This role is ensured by the involvement of leading international experts, as well as staff from selected UNICEF Country Offices, at an expert consultation prior to the drafting of each issue. Their early participation guarantees that every Digest represents the cutting-edge of current thinking.

This Innocenti Digest examines the prevalence of FGM/C and its social dynamics. It provides an explanation as to why the practice persists and of the elements necessary for its abandonment. It also takes stock of progress to date, identifies what works and what does not, and provides direction regarding the most successful strategies to promote the abandonment of FGM/C. Combining concrete field experience with tested academic theory, the Digest provides a practical tool to bring about positive change for girls and women

Around the world, in rural and urban areas alike, indigenous chilldren frequently constitute one of the most disadvantaged groups, and their rights - including those to survival and development, to the highest standards of health, to education that respects their cultural identity, and to protection from abuse, violence and exploitation - are often compromised.
