"Raise your hand against smacking" campaign pack

The "Raise your hand against smacking" campaign pack will facilitate campaign activities throughout Europe. It contains a mix of publications addressed to different target audiences. Together these shed light on the thorny issue of corporal punishment by defining it, provide a historical overview of Council of Europe and United Nations efforts to eradicate it, and debunk myths that sustain the existence and "legitimacy" of violent discipline. The pack also  informs on the three approaches needed to successfully challenge corporal punishment awareness raising, legal reform and policy reform and offers parents alternatives to violence in the form of positive parenting.
