Description

This report on the issue of male circumcision, examines the current national and international legal framework and offers recommendations for reform.

These include a general prohibition on the circumcision of incapable minors with an exception for well-established religious or ethnicity motivated circumcisions and the enactment of legislation clarifying the legality of circumcisions performed at the request of an adult or a capable minor and governing situations where parents disagree about the desirability of performing a circumcision.
