Abstract.

The research subject is the set of international mechanisms of protection of children and women against violence. The author studies the history of recognition and statutorization of female genital mutilation as a damaging and intolerable practice, infringing women’s and children’s rights. The author studies the normative and institutional international mechanism of combating FGM. Special attention is paid to the factors, hampering the eradication of mutilating practices: migration processes and justification of religious and traditional reasonability. The article studies the foreign experience of combating FGM. In order to obtain reliable scientific results, the author consistently applies general scientific methods (analysis, synthesis, the system-structural and formal-logical methods) and special methods of jurisprudence (comparative-legal and historical-legal methods). The author reasons the necessity to sign and ratify the 2011 Council of Europe Convention on prevention and combating violence against women and domestic violence. The author emphasizes the importance of creation of a national legal mechanism of protection of women’s and children’s rights against all forms of violence which should include normative and institutional elements, ideologically and culturally interconnected. The article substantiates the importance of support for religious views and legal education, condemning and denying prejudice, traditions and other practices, based on the idea of inferiority or supremacy of one of the genders, stereotypical roles of males and females and those damaging children’s health. 

Keywords: international organisation, international treaty, female genital mutilation, rights of children, women's rights, human rights, violence, religion, minimum standards, tradition
