EDD 2016

The European Development Days (EDD) are Europe’s leading forum on development and cooperation. Organised by the European Commission, the forum brings the development community together each year to share ideas and experiences in ways that inspire new partnership and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. 

Save the Children, together with the Global Initiative to End All Corporal Punishment of Children, have organised a stand in the EDD Village. The EDD Village showcases ground-breaking development projects, reports, and initiatives from around the world. By hosting a stand in the Village, we are able to showcase our work on ending corporal punishment, and to show our results and programmes while engaging with the rest of the development community.

Corporal punishment, the most common form of violence against children, violates their right to dignity, physical integrity, education and health, and is linked to negative outcomes (poor mental health, increased aggression, antisocial behaviour etc.) that can persist into adulthood.   

Violence disproportionately affects the development of low- and middle-income countries, undermining personal and collective security, slowing economic growth and impeding social development.

Development agencies can play a key role in ending violence against children – a foundation for peaceful societies.

This page provides a list of publications and information on our work on ending violence against children. This will supplement our participation at the EDD 2016 conference.
