United Arab Emirates: Child Protection Law in the United Arab Emirates
JD Supra – August 05, 2016
The Community Development Authority (CDA) of Dubai has recently drafted a new child protection policy, which protects children, investigates abuses against their rights, and provides government services to families and children believed to be in danger. This new policy seeks to protect not only children residing in the Emirate, but even children just passing through. Currently, there is no federal law addressing child abuse and neglect, nor is there a process for intervention if the child is abused by a family member.
