Adriana Kaplan Marcusán
Her research career began with the study of migrations in Sub-Saharan Africa and the anthropological analysis of processes such as acculturation and social integration in the field of sexual and reproductive health, seen from a circular and transnational gender perspective. Adriana conducts fieldwork in Gambia, Senegal and Guinea Bissau, and her work focuses on the study and prevention of female genital mutilation (FGM). She has created the Transnational Observatory for the Prevention of FGM, a programme which operates under the auspices of the Wassu-UAB Foundation, with two research bases in Spain and in Gambia, where an innovative and sustainable evidence-based and result-oriented methodology is being developed.
