This briefing highlights the human rights imperative to prohibit all violent punishment of children in all ASEAN member states. It summarises progress so far towards prohibition in each state and what remains to be done. Aiming to promote national action for prohibition, it emphasises the many immediate opportunities for working to fulfil children’s right to protection in law from all corporal punishment in all settings – in particular, where states are currently reforming legislation related to children, and in relation to the global 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and target 16.2 to end all violence against children.
