The East and Central Africa Regional Workshop on law reform to prohibit all corporal punishment, held on the 26th to 28th of May 2009 in Nairobi brought together many participants from Save the Children Sweden program staff, partners from Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and government ministries and departments from Ethiopia, Kenya, North Sudan, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda. The workshop focused on identifying legislative gaps in prohibiting corporal punishment so as to initiate, strategize and advocate for law reform to prohibit corporal punishment. The objectives of the workshop were as follows: (i) To establish the human rights imperative to prohibit all corporal punishment of children including in the home; (ii) To increase knowledge about what law reform means and how to achieve it through advocacy; and (iii) To develop national strategies for law reform which can be communicated clearly and pursued following the workshop.
