African newsletter (issue 32) is out now in English and French

Our African newsletters are published quarterly in English and French, providing a round-up of recent developments, campaigns and positive moves towards ending corporal punishment from across the continent. This latest edition also presents new resources to support advocacy on the issue, as well as information from African and UN human rights monitoring bodies, including new recommendations to prohibit all corporal punishment made to African states by the Committee on the Rights of the Child, the Human Rights Council and under the Universal Periodic Review.

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. If you have any queries or comments, please contact Sonia Vohito, Africa Project Coordinator, at
