Time Frame to Enforce Laws

The time between the enactment and enforcement of a new FGM law must be carefully calculated so that amendments and regulations which are necessary to the enforcement of the new law will be enacted and promulgated speedily.


Amendments to Laws

Drafters should anticipate and allow for amendments to the law on FGM as unintended consequences and unforeseen manifestations of the practice of female genital mutilation occur.
