New booklets answer frequently asked questions about prohibiting corporal punishment!

The Global Initiative and Save the Children Sweden present a new series of three booklets which provide answers to the questions that arise when we think about prohibiting all corporal punishment of children.

The booklets aim to give parents and carers, government officials, education professionals and others the confidence to support and pursue legal reform and move a step closer to realising children’s right to protection from all forms of violence in all settings.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and other international and regional human rights treaties require states to prohibit corporal punishment of children in all settings of their lives.

The booklets are available to download now in English, French, Spanish and Russian. They will also shortly be available in Arabic, Albanian, Bengali, Chinese, Portuguese and Thai.
