By Karisa Cloward

Many transnational campaigns, and especially the transnational crusade on violence opposed to girls, advertise foreign norms that focus on the habit of neighborhood nonstate actors. yet those foreign norms are usually at odds with neighborhood practices. What occurs while the foreign and native norms collide? whilst does transnational activism lead participants and groups to desert neighborhood norms and include foreign ones?

In When Norms Collide, Karisa Cloward provides a path-breaking theoretical framework for knowing the approaches in which contributors negotiate competing calls for put on them by way of overseas and native norms. Drawing on huge fieldwork with neighborhood groups in Kenya, she applies the speculation to the practices of girl genital mutilation and early marriage. Cloward argues that, while confronted with foreign normative messages, participants can choose to swap their attitudes, their habit, and the general public picture they current to overseas and native audiences. in addition, the influence of transnational activism on members considerably relies on the salience of the foreign and native norms to their respective proponents, in addition to on community-level factors.
