End Violence Against Children Now

The year 2015 has witnessed extensive progress towards universal prohibition of physical and humiliating punishment of children, more than half of UN member states have now achieved legal prohibition in all settings or have expressed a committment to doing so. However, the majority of children across the globe still experience physical and humiliating punishment at home, and it is still legal in most of the world’s countries.

This booklet is based on an internal desk review of Save the Children’s and partners’ work against physical and humiliating punishment of children, commissioned by Save the Children Sweden. It presents best practices and lessons learned from different parts of the world on how to stop physical and humiliating punishment of children and to promote positive discipline.
