Yaroslav Lyzohub

Abstract


The paper is devoted to the issues of criminalisation of forcing to marriage. The author considered a lot of criminal-legal sources, which provide a responsibility for the mentioned socially dangerous phenomenon, all over Europe. A significant part of the manuscript covers a juridical analysis of a crime provided by Article 151-2 of the Criminal code of Ukraine in force. The author, according to his opinion, takes under consideration some burning questions which make incorrect qualification and use of the aforecited norm. A certain place in the paper is allocated for the analysis of foreign criminal legislation for combating coercion to marriage. So, the author has made EU criminal legislation review concerning the anti-forced marriage campaign and separately displayed criminal-legal approaches to resist forced marriage within other European territories which are not EU members. There was briefly revealed the reaction of EU countries for signing and ratification of appropriate EC Convention.
