Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities: Bosnia and Herzegovina
CRPD session 17 (2017)
(12 April 2017, CRPD/C/BIH/CO/1, Concluding observations on initial report, Advance unedited version, paras. 14 and 15)
“The Committee is concerned that corporal punishment of children, especially children with disabilities, is not explicitly prohibited in the family, alternative care and day care settings in the State party. It is further concerned that there is no universal and equal access to services of early childhood recognition and intervention for children with disabilities.
“The Committee recommends that the State Party:
(a) Explicitly and universally prohibit corporal punishment of children, with particular attention for children with disabilities living in institutions;
(b) Provide children with disabilities with sufficient early childhood intervention and development services in cooperation with organisations of parents with children with disabilities at the local level.”Read more from CRPD session 17 (2017)
