Committee on the Rights of the Child: Monaco

Session 064 (2013)

(29 October 2013, CRC/C/MCO/CO/2-3, Concluding observations on second/third report, paras. 6, 7, 28 and 29)

"The Committee, while welcoming the State party’s efforts to implement the Committee’s concluding observations of 2001 on the State party’s initial report (CRC/C/15/Add.158), notes with regret that some of the recommendations contained therein have not been fully addressed.

"The Committee recommends that the State party take all necessary measures to address those recommendations from the concluding observations of the initial periodic report under the Convention that have not been implemented or sufficiently implemented, in particular with regard to … corporal punishment. 

"Despite the fact that the State party’s criminal law provisions prohibit different forms of violence against children, the Committee regrets that the State party continues to lack legislation explicitly prohibiting corporal punishment in all settings, including the home, institutions and all alternative care settings, as previously recommended by the Committee (CRC/C/15/Add.158, para. 27). 

"The Committee urges the State party to introduce provisions expressly prohibiting corporal punishment in all settings, and to strengthen its efforts to promote positive, non-violent and participatory forms of child-rearing and discipline."

(8 June 2001, CRC/C/15/Add.158, Concluding observations on initial report, paras. 26 and 27)

"The Committee is concerned that corporal punishment is not prohibited under law.

"The Committee recommends that the State party prohibit the practice of corporal punishment in the family and conduct information campaigns targeting, among others, parents, children, law enforcement and judicial officials and teachers, explaining children’s rights in this regard and encouraging the use of alternative forms of discipline in a manner consistent with the child’s human dignity and in conformity with the Convention, especially articles 19 and 28.2."
