THE TEAM

Eliminating corporal punishment - A human rights imperative for Europe's children sheds light on the controversial issue of corporal punishment of children. It approaches this topic from four different angles: the legal and human rights obligation, as defined by regional and international conventions and agreements, to ban corporal punishment; the status of corporal punishment in European countries today; recent research results on its effects and prevalence; and the process of abolition. This book is aimed at child and family professionals, government decision makers and a public motivated to learn more.
