Iran's Legislative Criminal Policy Developments on Religious Minorities, ‎Women and Children in the Light of Human Rights Standards
Amir Samavati Pirouz‏‏, Sina Najafi‎
Pages: 100-109

Abstract

The present article examines Iran's legislative criminal policy developments regarding ‎women and victimized children in the light of human rights standards. One of the most ‎important issues of human rights standards is the protection of children and women as ‎vulnerable groups. This is particularly very sensitive and important in criminal law. The key ‎question raised in this regard is how can Iran's legislative criminal policy developments ‎regarding religious minorities, women and victimized children in the light of human rights ‎standards be evaluated? The present article is a descriptive-analytic one and uses the library ‎method to investigate the question referred. The results of the study indicate that in the field ‎of legislation, criminal law, especially in the area of sentencing women, has become closer ‎to human rights standards more than before, but it is still distant from human rights ‎standards and is accompanied by many gaps in the case of children such as lack of ‎retribution for a father who kills his child. But unfortunately there are still many gaps in the ‎rights of religious minorities‎‎‎‎‎‎.
