In February 2017, the Lithuanian Parliament passed amendments to the Law on the Fundamentals of Protection of the Rights of the Child 1996. The reform makes Lithuania the 52nd state worldwide to prohibit corporal punishment of children in all settings and the 22nd European Union state to do so. All of the Baltic States have now achieved legal prohibition of violence against children.

Read this briefing to learn more about the processes, programmes, and organisations involved in making the prohibition of corporal punishment in all settings a reality for children in Lithuania.
