Note: Despite the fact that still not all genital mutilations are properly listed (especially the 'masculinising' ones were mostly left out), this Shadow Report is the most comprehensive yet. On November 4th 2011, the 47th Session of The Committee Against Torture (CAT) also reached the most clear-cut Concluding Observations yet – the very first to explicitly condemn non-consensual surgery on intersex children, demanding a.o. that Germany should:

"Undertake investigation of incidents of surgical and other medical treatment of intersex people without effective consent and adopt legal provisions in order to provide redress to the victims of such treatment, including adequate compensation."
