Date: 29th June 2016
Category: Equal protection from violence
This special report from the Global Initiative outlines progress to date towards universal prohibition and elimination of all violent punishment of children.
Prepared for a high-level intergovernmental conference hosted by the Austrian Government in Vienna, June 2016, and marking the 10th anniversary of the UN Study on Violence against Children, this special report outlines progress to date towards universal prohibition and elimination of all corporal punishment and how the new Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 provides an additional context to speed progress. Designed to support action, the report describes how states can work collaboratively towards universal prohibition of violent punishment; it sets out existing regional commitments and action and how to use opportunities at national level to achieve prohibition. Where a total ban has been achieved, the report outlines what is required for states to move from prohibition in law to elimination of all violent punishment of children.
