Human Rights Committee: Djibouti

HRC session 109 (2013)

(19 November 2013, CCPR/C/DJI/CO/1, Concluding observations on initial report, para. 14)

"The Committee expresses concern that corporal punishment is not explicitly prohibited in the State party. It expresses concern that it is tolerated in the home, where it is traditionally practised although unreported (arts. 7 and 24).

The State party should take practical steps to put an end to corporal punishment of children in all settings, including in the home. It should encourage non-violent forms of discipline and conduct public information campaigns to raise awareness of the harmful effects of any form of violence against children."
