UN Technical Paper Recommendations from the International Roundtable on the Family Violence Legislation in China

Authors/editor(s): UN Inter-Agency Task Force to Support the China Family Violence Law Drafting Process

This technical report provides specific recommendations regarding provisions to be included in the Chinese national Family Violence Law. These recommendations are informed by international human rights treaties adopted by China that define the State’s responsibility to provide protection to victims of family violence and hold perpetrators accountable as well as by the gaps that exist in current Chinese law. The recommendations also integrate lessons learned from presentations made by international experts on national laws regarding family violence, children’s rights, disability rights and elder abuse from Austria, Australia, Finland, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States at the UN International Family Violence Roundtable in April 2014.
