In October 2013 PACE, the foremost human rights body in Europe, adopted a resolution on the bodily integrity of children that rightfully discussed the genital cutting ("circumcision") of young boys a violation of their human rights. After heavy criticism -- including accusations of racism and Anti-Semitism -- and political pressure from religious groups seeking to promote the genital cutting of boys, PACE held this historic debate on January 28, 2014. The full program from the event is copied below:
