Loi du 16 décembre 2008 relative à l’aide à l’enfance et à la famille (Act of the 16th of December, 2008 on children and family assistance) (Luxembourg)
Article 2 is the first explicit reference to FGM in domestic legislation, prohibiting inhuman or degrading treatments and genital mutilations within families or educational communities. Yet, the law does not establish specific protection measures, only providing a framework for measures of assistance to children at risk. Article 11 thus lists interventions that can be proposed with the support of parents or tutors, and which are subordinate to possible legal prosecutions.
Child Protection Provisions
Number of FGM related interventions
I have questioned all my interlocutors about their knowledge about the reporting of FGM cases to any public institution or authority and none was aware of a single case
