Eliminating corporal punishment:
a human rights imperative for Europe's children
is a major contribution to efforts to ban all corporal punishment, including
within the family.
This is a major concern and commitment for the Council of Europe.
The foundation for this commitment is provided by human rights standards
defined by various legal instruments, including the United
Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, the European Convention on
Human Rights and the European Social Charter and revised Social Charter.
