Global Initiative to End All Corporal Punishment of Children

The Global Initiative aims to:
form a strong alliance of human rights agencies, key individuals and non-governmental organisations against corporal punishment;
make corporal punishment of children visible by building a global map of its prevalence and legality, ensuring that children's views are heard and charting progress towards ending it;
encourage state governments systematically to ban all forms of corporal punishment and to develop public education programmes;
promote awareness-raising of children’s right to protection and public education on positive, non-violent forms of discipline for children;
provide detailed technical assistance to support states with these reforms.

Of the 14 states examined in the 18th session of the Universal Periodic Review (27 Jan – 7 Feb 2014), three were already on the list of states which have achieved prohibition of all corporal punishment of children, including in the home.
