Reconsidering Male Circumcision

Today, Cornelia Koch and Anne Hewitt from the Adelaide Law School will present a public seminar on the regulation of circumcision in Australia and Germany. The discussion is informed by a recent decision of a German Court that the circumcision of a young Muslim boy constituted a criminal offence. The issue involves delicate questions about the right to religious freedom and the right to bodily integrity of young children. Full details on the event can be accessed here.

Yesterday, Cornelia Koch spoke to Tim Brunero from Radio Adelaide about male circumcision and whether the practice may be outlawed. The podcast can be downloaded here.

Anne Hewitt spoke to the Adelaide Advertiser on the issue. Read the full article here.

Cornelia Koch and Anne Hewitt are Senior Lecturers at the Adelaide Law School.
