Amendment No. 1 | Doc. 13870 | 29 September 2015

Equality and shared parental responsibility: the role of fathers

Committee on Social Affairs, Health and Sustainable Development

Origin - 2015 - Fourth part-session

In the draft resolution, paragraph 5.5, replace the words "but under no circumstances in cases of sexual or gender-based violence" with the following words:

"limiting any exceptions to cases of child abuse or neglect, or domestic violence".

Explanatory note

Children have the right to be protected from violence. This right supersedes the right of parents to benefit from the principle of shared residence. The amendment seeks to clarify that all cases of child abuse or neglect or domestic violence should be taken into account when allocating residence.
