This latest edition of the African newsletter documents recent developments, campaigns and positive moves towards ending corporal punishment from across the region – including an advocacy intervention in Togo to move from prohibition to elimination of all corporal punishment. It presents the new annual global report from the Global Intiative, as well as information from human rights monitoring bodies in Africa and beyond, including new recommendations to African states to prohibit all corporal punishment.
We hope this newsletter will be a useful resource to support individuals and organisations campaigning to prohibit and eliminate all corporal punishment of children – and to encourage the development of new campaigns where they are needed.
