Reports on every state and territory

The Global Initiative maintains detailed reports on corporal punishment in every state and territory worldwide, setting out the legality of corporal punishment in each setting – the home, alternative care, day care, schools and penal systems – as well as relevant recommendations made under the Universal Periodic Review and by UN and regional treaty bodies, and summaries of recent prevalence or attitudinal research.
