Ending legalised violence against children -11 January 2011

Hitting people is wrong – and children are people too. Corporal punishment of children breaches their fundamental rights to respect for their human dignity and physical integrity. Its legality breaches their right to equal protection under the law. Urgent action is needed in every region of the world to respect fully the rights of all children – the smallest and most fragile of people. This report reviews law and policy in relation to corporal punishment and deliberate humiliation of children throughout the world. It makes recommendations for law reform and other measures which it is hoped will be adopted and pursued urgently, at national, regional and international levels, in the context of follow-up to the UN Secretary-General’s Study on Violence against Children.
