Child Protection in Dubai under Shariah Law
Child Protection in Dubai is new; however, Child abuse is as old as humankind around the world. Protection of children is the primary concern of every parent in UAE and obviously in other countries as well, and eventually Child Protection in Dubai is lately a concern for government authorities, courts, legislators and other administrative departments. It is certainly a bitter truth that countries have laws and regulations in the interest of Child Protection and to prevent physical, mental or any other sort of abuse and mistreatment against children in our society.
UAE follows the principles of Shariah, which significantly emphasize the welfare of the children and the need to protect children from all sort of abuse. In the wake of following Shariah Principles and considering the number foreign expatriates living in the country, UAE signed United Conventions for Child Protection and has similarly issued several laws and regulations to reflect the same principles in local laws effectively. Although the Emirate of Sharjah was the first in issuing laws for Child Protection which were later covered up by the government by issuing Federal Law Number 3 of 2016 regarding Child’s rights, importantly, government has established a Community Development Authority in each Emirate obliged to draft child protection policies and must oversee the implementation of the federal laws governing Child Protection in Dubai and other Emirates. The current statute not only protects the children residing within the country but it even protect children who are simply travelling via Dubai.
In addition to this Federal Law, number 28 of 2005 regarding Personal Status Law governing all sorts of family issues within the country, including Child Protection, as these laws are derived from the principles of Shariah. The law specifically emphasizes on duties of custodians and their ability to safeguard the best interest of the Child. Courts in UAE critically focus on several factors while appointing the custodian of the Child and leaves no stone unturned when it comes to Child Protection in Dubai.
