CAT session 052 (2014)

([May 2014], CAT/C/MNE/CO/2 Advance Unedited Version, Concluding observations on second report, para. 21)

"While welcoming Montenegro’s commitment, made during the UPR, to explicitly prohibit corporal punishment of children in all settings (A/HRC/23/12/Add.1, para.21), the Committee notes that corporal punishment of children is not explicitly prohibited in the home and alternative care settings and that corporal punishment is still widely practised in society and acceptance as form of discipline in Montenegro. (art. 16)

The State party should adopt and implement legislation explicitly prohibiting corporal punishment in all settings, supported by the necessary awareness-raising and educational campaigns about the negative impact of corporal punishment on children."
