This publication provides information about corporal punishment and other forms of humiliating and degrading punishment of children in Swaziland. It outlines international obligations to prohibit the corporal punishment of children and to engage in public education. It provides recommendations on steps to be taken by the government and civil society to ensure that the culture of corporal punishment and other forms of humiliating and degrading punishment of children is replaced by positive, non-violent forms of discipline based on respect for children?s rights. Corporal punishment of Swazi children is a legalised form of child-rearing in the home, at school, and as a sentence by a court. The paper finds that many boys and girls of all ages in Swaziland experience high levels of corporal punishment and other forms of humiliating and degrading punishment in the home and at school.
